The Northwest Florida coast is proud to host a chapter of the oldest public relations association in the United States. The Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA) is a statewide organization of more than 1,200 public relations professionals dedicated to advancing the profession of public relations and enhancing the professional development of its members.

The NWFL Chapter of FPRA boasts a small but mighty membership spanning the geographic areas of Okaloosa County, Walton County and Bay County with members representing multiple local industries including government, hospitality/tourism, economic development, associations, non-profit, education, healthcare, retail, agencies and small business.

Our chapter includes all levels of professional communicators, from students to new graduates to seasoned professionals. This strong network comes together for support and education through monthly membership meetings, professional development seminars and special events. 

We are committed not only to the betterment of our profession and ourselves, but also to our community. In addition to professional development opportunities, we lend our expertise to a number of community service projects throughout the year. FPRA is a sound professional investment that opens the door to a world of opportunities.
