Section resources include an active e-Group with a listserv, news items and document archive; a searchable member directory open to the public which facilitates new business, meeting, mentoring, marketing, teaming and information sharing; national teleseminars; and specialized programming and networking at the annual PRSA International Conference. The Independent Practitioners Alliance is open to any PRSA member who is an independent or considering becoming one, or who would like to learn more about this growing sector of the public relations industry.
