The goal of the Recruitment Committee is to spread the word about PRSSA to increase the overall number of registered members. The committee will serve two functions each semester: general PRSSA membership recruitment and event recruitment. The committee executes promotional opportunities that include: distributing flyers, social media content, speaking to other organization and working tabling events.

The Event Planning Committee works with the Vice President to create a semester-based calendar of events for PRSSA and ensure that each event is set up. Such events include senior awards banquet, member socials, diversity mixers and more.
The PRSSA Member Relations Committee’s main focuses are to drive engagement within the organization and recognize both internal and external chapter achievement. Members of this committee are responsible for highlighting individual, professional achievements of our chapter members. This committee is also responsible for tracking chapter attendance.
