There are three types of membership:

Student Membership – It is a specific requirement of the endorsement contracts under which all PRISA public relations courses are licensed and taught. All students must register as student members at the start of their course.

Your PRISA Students’ Chapter card gives you access to:

  • PRISA’s Interactive Website
  • Notices of regional functions
  • Invitations to educational and social events
  • Continuing Professional Development
  • Expertise, help and advice from professionals
  • A Library
  • Annual conference (at a reduced rate)
  • Large discounts on workshops

Membership is renewable annually until completion of your studies. Thereafter you can apply to upgrade to formal registration with PRISA.

Individual MembershipNew applicants are evaluated according to academic qualifications and work experience, and given points to determine at which level they are to be registered, i.e. Affiliate, Associate, Public Relations Practitioner (PRP) and Chartered Public Relations Practitioner (CPRP). The Accredited in Public Relations Practitioner (APR), is the highest designation.

Corporate MembershipThis applies when there are five or more individuals from one company who join PRISA. They pay a discounted individual fee excluding the initial entrance fee of R228. The annual fee varies, depending on the number of individuals registered at the same time

NOTE: An organisation cannot be a corporate member unless the individual practitioners in the team are registered with PRISA in their individual capacities.

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) workshops are run by PRISA and are available to all members and non-members. However our members receive better rates when booking. Our CPD Programme this year promises new facilitators with new and exciting workshops.

Our Annual Conference will be hosted in partnership with the International Public Relations Association (IPRA) from 27 – 29 September 2015 at the Sandton Convention Centre.

Your annual membership renewal guarantees you all of the above and more!
