PRSSA Headquarters must receive dues by March 1 or Nov. 1. Contact PRSSA Headquarters if circumstances prevent you from meeting these deadlines. Even if dues are late, the memberships are considered as starting either March 1 or Nov. 1, and will expire the following year on the last day of February or October.
Students must pay National dues once each calendar year to be a PRSSA member. National dues are $55, and Chapters may charge an additional fee. The following four steps must be completed to submit dues properly.
- Step 1: Log in to the Chapter Admin site and click on the green “Manage Dues” button to begin. Only Chapter Presidents and Faculty Advisers have access to this resource. If you are a Chapter President or Faculty Adviser and do not know your login please contact PRSSA Headquarters at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212-460-1474.
- Step 2: Download the Dues Workbook, which contains all students whose dues are up for renewal. Enter contact information for each new or renewing member. If a member in the Dues Workbook will not be renewing, either select that option or remove the row. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the file. The dues amount will be calculated automatically.
- Step 3: Collect all dues from your Chapter and either pay online or mail in one university-issued check, cashier’s check or money order to PRSSA Headquarters for the full amount. PRSSA will not accept individual checks from each of your members. Send only National dues, which are $55 per student. Make checks payable to “PRSSA,” and ensure the name of your school appears on the check as either the account name or in the memo field.
Note: National and Chapter dues cannot be prorated. However, if you graduate the same semester you pay dues (e.g., pay November 2018 dues and graduate December 2018), you can join PRSA for only an additional $5 upon graduation. Contact PRSSA for details about this offer.
