FAQ

How can I join PRSA?

For more information visit our membership page, or contact Natalie Hansman at nhansman@smythautomotive.com with any questions.

Can I join the Cincinnati Chapter without joining PRSA nationally? Can I just be a national member without joining the local chapter?

You must join the national organization to be considered a PRSA member. Local chapter membership provides full access to events at a member rate (often free), full access to the job bank, the opportunity to participate in chapter leadership activities, and APR readiness courses. 

How do I update my membership contact information?

Can I attend a PRSA meeting without being a member? 

Yes, non-members are encouraged to attend our local meetings so that you can learn more about the chapter, and our programs and activities.

Can I purchase your membership list? 

No. The Cincinnati Chapter of PRSA does not sell its membership list.  However, there are plenty of sponsorship opportunities available if you'd like to get your name/product/services out to our members.

Do you keep a database of available internships in the Greater Cincinnati area?

No. The chapter does not keep a specific list of available internships in the Greater Cincinnati area. However, internships are frequently listed in the Job Bank. If you are looking for an internship, a good place to start is with the local advertising and PR agencies in town and/or with local non-profit organizations. They are frequently looking for interns.
