About Us

The Westchester/Fairfield Chapter of PRSA was established in 1965 and serves more than 100 members throughout Westchester and its surrounding counties in New York, and Fairfield County in Connecticut. We're also the parent chapter for the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapter at Iona College in New Rochelle, NY and the chapter at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York.

We offer professional development and networking opportunities through programs with respected public relations professionals as speakers, "Meet the Media" panels, workshops, access to free PRSA National webinars, social events and our popular Peer Group get-togethers for Agency/Solo Practitioner, Corporate and Non-Profit communicators. Chapter members also have access to our online Member Directory and confidential services including mentoring, ethics counseling and Accreditation coaching.

Chapter membership is $50 a year and is open to Members, Associate, Grad School and Retired Members of PRSA National. Please check out our Join page for a list of PRSA member benefits and instructions and links on how to join.

We welcome volunteers! If you're interested in exercising your leadership, planning or tactical skills and raising your visibility with colleagues and businesses in the region, please contact our 2015 Nominating Committee chair, Peter Giles, at nominating@prsa-wf.org.  We've got opportunities in both elected and non-elected positions.
