Special Interest Sections

Participation in PRSA Richmond chapter’s special interest sections is included with membership. Members can receive information about special interest sections by self-selecting the section within their member profiles.

Government Section

The Government special interest section includes PRSA Richmond members who work for or offer support to government agencies at the local, state or national level. Government professionals meet twice a year to discuss current campaigns and identify what shared resources are available. Networking events will take place in the first and third quarters, with dates and times distributed a few weeks in advance.

Independent Practitioners

The PRSA Richmond Independent Practitioners Alliance enables independent practitioners to network and share information with, and seek advice from, other PRSA members who share their entrepreneurial interests.
 The section’s purpose is to strengthen the independent sector in the Richmond PR community, advocate for independents within the local chapter, advance their business opportunities and create tailored professional development opportunities.

Nonprofit Section

The Nonprofit Section welcomes PRSA Richmond members who work for nonprofit organizations. The Nonprofit committee of the board works on programming and other opportunities for members to come together to share best practices and insight specific to the challenges nonprofits face. Specifics about programming will be distributed throughout the year.

Senior Practitioners

The Senior Practitioner’s group welcomes Richmond PRSA members with 15 or more years of professional experience. Senior practitioners gather two or three times a year for roundtable discussions of “hot” topics and for small-group meetings with visiting VIP practitioners.

Young Professionals

The Young Professionals group is a special interest section for PR practitioners who have three years or less of professional PR experience. Opportunities include events designed for networking with peers and getting career advice from top-level local practitioners.

The chapter also offers a mentorship program that will pair members with experienced practitioners who they can meet with periodically to discuss industry insights, career paths and much more.
