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 last summer to now having great monthly and bi-monthly events including our inaugural annual conference in June 2017 at the Liberty View at Independence Visitor Center. We received a citation from Philadelphia City Council, and awarded a $500 scholarship to a college student and presented Communicator of the Year and Organization of the Year Award to persons making an impact in their field and the community.
Founded in 2000, Philadelphia Black Public Relations Society's mission is to provide public relations and communications practitioners throughout the Greater Philadelphia region with a venue and a resource for professional support. We are committed to serving as an advocate, a resource and a venue for African-American public relations practitioners and professional communicators throughout the Philadelphia region. PBPRS accomplishes this by fostering a network between members and other professionals that enable growth and development.
