The Public Relations Society of America Memphis Chapter is a network of Mid-South public relations, communications, strategy, media, and ethics and compliance professionals. Our chapter comprises members from organizations, corporations, agencies, media outlets, educational institutions, and independent agencies or freelancers.

    Founded in 1952 at The Peabody Hotel in downtown Memphis, the chapter grew from a few passionate members striving to promote their industry to a large, respected professional society dedicated to advancing our industry, improving our community, and supporting our members.
