When you submit dues for your Chapter members you make it possible for your Chapter and its members to receive the full benefits of PRSSA membership.
PRSSA Headquarters must receive dues by March 1 or Nov. 1. Contact PRSSA Headquarters if extenuating circumstances prevent you from meeting these deadlines. Even if dues are late, the memberships are considered as starting either March 1 or November 1, and will expire the following year on the last day of February or October, respectively.
Read the information below to help you submit dues correctly.
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: Complete the Chapter Information Sheet (Word or PDF). This form updates our records for your Chapter, and helps us ensure you receive full benefits. If you choose to complete the PDF version of the form, use Adobe Acrobat Reader; if you choose to complete the Word version it must be typed.
- Step 2: Gather contact information for each new or renewing member. Complete the three worksheets within the Member List (XLS). The third excel worksheet should include a list of all the students who are paying dues this period. We encourage listing personal email addresses such as gmail or yahoo rather than school email addresses.
- Step 3: Collect all the dues from your Chapter, and send one 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 is written on the check.
- Step 4: Email your Chapter Information Sheet and your Member List to email@example.com. Then mail a hard copy of the Chapter Information Sheet along with your Chapter dues payment for the total amount to PRSSA Membership Dues | 120 Wall Street, 21st Fl. | New York, NY 10005-4024.
Keep a copy of your documents for your Chapter's records. If you have further questions, contact PRSSA Headquarters.
Note: National and Chapter dues cannot be prorated. However, if you graduate the same semester you pay dues (e.g., pay March 2016 dues and graduate May 2016), you may separately pay an additional $5 and submit your PRSA membership form within that same semester to become a PRSA Associate member upon graduation.
