Leadership
Leaders like You PDF Print E-mail

PRSASW is led by PRSA Members Just Like You. Each of the 14 chapters within the district is represented on the Southwest District board, typically by the president or president-elect. This means each of the chapters have a vote when it comes to deciding district business.

But individual chapter members can contribute to district programming and activities – building professional and personal connections with leaders across the country. To learn more about becoming involved, contact the district officers or your chapter president.
