Apply to Serve on the Richmond PR Foundation Board

The Richmond Public Relations Foundation is currently accepting applications for positions on the Richmond PR Foundation Board. I hope that you’ll consider applying.

The Foundation is a 501(c) (3) and is the charitable arm of PRSA Richmond. For more than 20 years, the Foundation has worked to enhance the public relations profession through student scholarship programs and APR support.

Throughout the year, Foundation Board members focus on the following initiatives:

  • Fundraising activities to support scholarship and professional development programs;
  • Promoting and selecting college student scholarship winners;
  • Supporting a limited number of current practitioners as they pursue their APR, by reimbursing some accreditation costs.

Board terms are three years long, and we typically meet four times per year, with some projects in between.

We are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion in our Board recruitment and programming. Because we offer student scholarships across the state, we are also seeking board members outside of the Richmond region. Read the Board’s strategic plan to learn more about our overall programming.

I am lucky to serve as the Richmond PR Foundation president for 2022. If you have any questions about the Board, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me – Cameron McPherson at
