The IU chapter of PRSSA began in May, 2004. The chapter was formerly the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC); however, the need for a specific public relations organization on the Indiana University campus was growing, and the decision was made to switch the organization to PRSSA. The official chapter name is the Beth Wood Chapter of PRSSA at Indiana University.

Our chapter is dedicated to enabling IU students to explore and prepare for careers in public relations. Members have opportunities to apply classroom concepts and develop professional skills through practical experiences, make networking connections with practitioners, and develop leadership and career skills in a learning environment that is open to all. The experiences and resources offered by the chapter enable students to build their portfolios and enter the field as qualified, sought-after young professionals.

Goals of the Indiana University PRSSA Chapter

•Provide opportunities to develop professional and career skills and to build portfolios through projects and programs that prepare members for careers in public relations

•Enable members to learn about the wide array of career options within public relations

•Provide networking opportunities with PR practitioners

•Enhance the status of public relations in the Indiana University School of Journalism and Indiana University Bloomington
