Joining PRSSA gives you access to a variety of member benefits that will enhance your education, broaden your network and launch your career. And getting started is just as easy as joining Carolina PRSSA. We boast more than 80 members and we’re located just 20 minutes from Research Triangle Park (RTP) and 40 minutes from the City of Raleigh, offering an abundant public relations network, ranging from alumni and small businesses to large-scale PR/communications firms.

Please check with an Executive Board Member or our Calendar of Events for important deadlines regarding dues.

In order to be considered a member of UNC-Chapel Hill’s chapter of PRSSA, $60 in dues is required to be turned into our chapter advisors annually. The dues cover membership at the national level ($50) and chapter level ($10), as well as the cost of a Carolina PRSSA T-shirt! You can pay your dues in cash (in a sealed envelope with your first and last name written on the exterior) or by check (made out to “PRSSA” with “UNC-Chapel Hill” written on the memo line).

PRSSA Headquarters MUST receive dues by November 1 or March 1. Memberships are considered starting on either Nov. 1 or Mar. 1 and will expire the following year on the last day of October or February, respectively. Again, this means that dues are annual for those who wish to remain members.

NOTE: National and chapter dues cannot be prorated. If you graduate the same semester you pay dues (e.g. you pay March 2015 & graduate May 2015), you may separately pay an additional $10 and submit your PRSA Membership Form within the same semester to become a PRSA Associate Member upon graduation. If you have any questions, please see an Executive Board member for more information.
