Welcome to the Philadelphia Black Public Relations Society (PBPRS). It is a pleasure serving this great organization as we continue building. We have gone from quarterly events to now having our own annual conference.
As part of my Presidency, I felt it important to implement an annual conference for African Americans in the region.
At our 2017 inaugural conference held at the Liberty View, we received a citation from the Philadelphia City Council, presented Communicator of the Year and Organization of the Year Award to persons making an impact in their field and the community.
In June 2018, we expanded the annual educational event to a full day conference which was once again held at the Liberty View Independence Visitor Center--offering professional development to PR practitioners, entrepreneurs, organizations and community members. NBC10/Telemundo62 was our media partner and Kenny Johnson from the Phillies and NBC10's Erin Coleman served as moderator.
Founded in 2000, Philadelphia Black Public Relations Society's mission is to provide public relations practitioners, entrepreneurs and community members throughout the Greater Philadelphia region with professional support. PBPRS accomplishes this by providing public relations education to PR professionals, community members and entrepreneurs that enable growth and professional development including an annual conference. We also provide an annual scholarship to a student majoring in public relations or similar field.
