Professional Development (ProfDev)

In line with its mandate to promote the continuing education of its members, PRSP offers professional development seminars and lectures. Topics are based on the training needs of the members, especially the new and younger ones, and also include latest trends in PR and communication that impact on their role as PR practitioners. Industry experts are invited as speakers who, sometimes, also come from the pool of PRSP elders and PR gurus.

These PRSP Professional Development seminars and lectures are not exclusive to PRSP members. They are also open to non-member PR practitioners who wish to further hone their PR skills and expand their network in the industry. Fees are affordable, covering meals and seminar materials.

For 2015, at least four Prof Dev seminars and lectures are in line. The first in the 2015 series is a Digital PR Forum in Cebu City on August 28, which is also aimed to expand the PRSP membership in the province and the Visayas Region.
On September 4, PRSP will tie up with ABS-CBN, as a major sponsor, in holding a Digital PR Summit.

In October, another Digital PR Forum will be held, this time in Davao City.

PR officers and communicators from government corporations, agencies, and offices are the next target audience for a PR seminar-workshop, which will include media management, in November.

Watch out for further announcements on the details of these Prof Dev seminars and lectures!

PR National Congress

By virtue of Proclamation No. 1357, the month of September every year has been declared as “Public Relations Month”. The effort to secure such proclamation in 2007 was made under the auspices of the Public Relations Society of the Philippines.

Consequently, the PR National Congress takes center stage every September in PRSP’s annual calendar. The PR National Congress is the largest congregation of public relations practitioners across industries,in the public sector, civil society and students in the country.

At the PR National Congress, be prepared to network with professionals and PRSP members from around the country, with international speakers and delegates and get ready to learn from a wide variety of sessions tailored to your career goals and professional interests.
