About Us

Welcome home — your professional home, where you’ll find nearly 200 PR colleagues in and around South Carolina.

Our members come from agency, corporate, public and nonprofit sectors to share professional information, career development and fellowship in a friendly and supportive environment. Seasoned PR pros, rising stars and area newcomers have joined forces to create the area’s most valuable public relations network.

Professional development

SCPRSA hosts frequent professional development events in Charleston, Columbia and Greenville featuring dynamic experts on timely topics important to our profession. We also collaborate on an annual conference with intensive workshops on hot topics in the industry. These events are open to members and guests, offering ideal opportunities to build business knowledge while networking with colleagues.


We recognize members for their outstanding achievements and contributions through our annual Mercury Awards — a judged competition and gala that celebrates excellence in the creation and execution of public relations campaigns and tactics.


SCPRSA supports an ongoing accreditation process for members that includes recruiting candidates and assisting with preparation for oral and written exams. We also work with the Public Relations Student Society of America at the University of South Carolina, the College of Charleston and Clemson University to sponsor mentoring programs for public relations students.

SCPRSA is a member of the Southeast District of PRSA.
