Chartered in 1979, the Central Illinois Chapter brings together people who are involved in public relations through professional development and advances the profession through public education, service and high standards of conduct.
The Central Illinois Chapter is part of the Public Relations Society of America, the world’s largest organization for public relations professionals.
PRSA represents a great value to its members who represent business and industry, counseling firms, government, associations, hospitals and other professional services. PRSA stands behind its new code of ethics, which was approved at the Fall World Congress in Chicago in October 2000.
We have developed strong ties with PRSSA chapters in Bloomington-Normal, Charleston, Peoria Urbana and Macomb which depend on us for professional guidance and upon which we depend for fresh new ideas and youthful vigor. Illinois State University, Eastern Illinois University, Western Illinois University, the University of Illinois at Champaign/Urbana and Bradley University maintain active student chapters which contribute to the strength of our region.
