Our History

The Hoosier Chapter was founded in 1957, ten years after the American Public Relations Association merged with the National Association of Public Relations Counselors to form PRSA. And much like our home, the Chapter has grown and changed dramatically in 44 years. Contrast the reports in 2001 with those of 1965: Today about 80 members regularly attend the monthly luncheons of the chapter, which with 320 members is one of the largest among 113 nationwide. In 1965 it numbered 44 and thought 15 was a great meeting turnout.

Throughout time the Chapter has won three national chapter membership incentive awards, hosted three East Central District conferences, been named the top among all chapters for management, received the chapter excellence award for professional development, been cited for placing fourth for membership retention and new members, collectively won three PRSA Silver Anvil Awards -- and a lot more.
