PRAM Northeast is one of 10 chapters that make up the Public Relations Association of Mississippi (PRAM), a statewide organization that provides leadership opportunities, professional development, and networking among public relations practitioners. By joining PRAM, members are automatically inducted to the regional organization called the Southern Public Relations Federation (SPRF), which consists of members of PRAM, the Public Relations Association of Louisiana (PRAL), the Public Relations Council of Alabama (PRCA), and the Emerald Coast Public Relations Organization (ECPRO) in Florida.
PRAM Northeast is based out of Tupelo, Mississippi, and is home to members from all over northeast Mississippi who work in Public Relations, Marketing, Communication and Media. The organization provides members the opportunity to network among peers for the purpose of professional development, continuing education, accreditation and achievement recognition.
As a member of PRAM Northeast, practitioners are also eligible to submit their work for recognition and peer review to the annual PRism Awards hosted by the Public Relations Association of Mississippi and to the Lantern Awards hosted by the Southern Public Relations Federation. Members are also eligible to pursue their Accreditation in Public Relations (APR), a graduate program designed to demonstrate competency in the knowledge, skills and abilities required to practice public relations effectively.
Monthly meetings are held on the last Wednesday of every month from January to October at the Renasant Center for Ideas in Board Room 108 located at 398 East Main Street, Tupelo, Mississippi 38804. Each meeting features guest speakers who share best practices in public relations. Topics may include: social media, digital advertising, web & graphic design, photography, media relations, writing for public platforms, crisis communication, community relations, professional development, and awards. To end each year, in lieu of a November/December meeting, members are invited to a holiday party to celebrate each other's success and achievements.
We hope you'll join us at the next meeting!
