How to Join Us

To join any local chapter of PRSA, you have to first be a member of the national organization. You can do that, and learn the many benefits of membership, here: https://www.prsa.org/membership/why-join-prsa/

You can be a member of the Montana Chapter even if you don’t live in the state of Montana; and you can be a member of more than one local chapter.
