PRSA’s more than 100 Chapters are organized into 10 Districts. Districts are important elements in Chapter success and provide a vital link between the local and national organizations.  PRSA’s Districts support chapters and their members by offering professional and leadership development at a regional and local level that complement national programs and cultivating outstanding representatives at the District level who can contribute to the broader community of PRSA.
