PPRS is a professional society of more than 150 active public relations professionals throughout Central Pennsylvania. Our members represent various types of organizations with expertise in all facets of public relations.

As communications professionals, we counsel leaders every day.  But when the tables are turned and we're looked to for leadership, will we be ready to provide it? In this hectic 24/7 communications environment, have you put any time into your own leadership development?
