Our primary purpose is to lobby and represent membership before political parties, state and federal agencies, to develop policy and position papers, and to act as your voice with regard to proposed legislation that impacts our industry.

PPROA was originally founded in 1929 as a non-profit industry association, governed by bylaws and directed by officers who are also members, to provide public relations, education, political donations, lobbying and publishing; however, our focus is collaboration between member companies.
