How to Join

To be a member of any chapter, you must be a member of the Public Relations Society of America. To make it easy, you can join both the national association and the PRSA CCC at the same time!

You can apply for membership by visiting and completing the membership application. Be sure to select membership for the California Capital Chapter on the application form.

Once you complete the form, you can submit online with your dues payment. Our annual chapter dues are $50 in addition to national dues, which are $267. For new PRSA members, there is also a $65 one-time initiation fee.
