IPA Membership Conference Call

The IPA will hold a members-only conference call on Wednesday, July 9 from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. Eastern. The purpose of the call will be to share important information about your membership benefits in the IPA. Topics will include an overview of five new vendor discount programs, information about upcoming professional development programs and an open forum discussion.

There is no cost to participate in the call. PRSA will send the dial-in number to members. Simply dial in to learn more about the IPA and to share in the dialogue with independent practitioners across the country.

Independent Practitioners Survey

For independent practitioners one of the best sources of information and knowledge are other independent practitioners. Fortunately, every other year for the last eight years, Vincent Hazleton, APR, Ph.D., Fellow PRSA from Radford University in Virginia and Jay Rayburn, APR, Ph.D., Fellow PRSA from Florida State University have conducted a survey of business practice issues related to independent practitioners of public relations.

 The survey results are made available to independent practitioners and other members of PRSA, FPRA, SPRF, and other public relations professional organizations. Professors Hazleton and Rayburn present the findings at the PRSA International Conference and publish the results in Tactics.
