Founded in 1984 as a networking and professional development collective, BPRS Chicago is the founding chapter of the National Black Public Relations Society (NBPRS). Members of BPRS Chicago include corporate communicators, agency and independent public relations practitioners, communications educators, nonprofits and government public information officers.
Our organization is focused on strengthening the communication skills of African-Americans and the career advancement opportunities they seek in the public relations, marketing and digital communications field. As an organization we bring together communicators who live and work in the Greater Chicago area to provide the continuous education needed to stay competitive, the peer-to-peer networking that fuels their passions, and the job placement opportunities they need to continue to feel challenged. Additionally, our mentoring, scholarships and alliance building is key to attracting and retaining the next generation of successful African-Americans who will thrive in our industry.
