“I attended my first BPRS event in December of 2001 after moving from Los Angeles to the Chicago area. I became a member at the next meeting. Not only did I have an opportunity to network with public relations and marketing professionals who worked for corporations and PR firms, I was able to get the inside scoop on how to break into the market as a recent transplant. Through the BPRS network, I picked up several consulting contracts that helped me get established. I am eternally grateful to the late Pat Tobin, founder of BPRS, who encouraged me to get involved with the Chicago chapter when she found out I was moving. And I highly recommend that you invest in your professional career by becoming a member today.”

Jeri Love, Writing and Editing Consultant


“I love this organization! I joined the Black Public Relations Society of Chicago as a senior at the University of Illinois for access to their job listings. The organization provided me access to leaders in the field, agency partners and other young PR professionals. From internships to full-time employment, every job I’ve ever had in the city of Chicago was a direct result of networking with BPRS.”
