Organisational Membership

What is it?

PRIA offers Australian companies organisational membership. PRIA organisational membership is designed for organisations that have four or more employees in their PR or Communications team who wish to take advantage of the many professional development opportunities, discounts, exclusive event invitations, personalised in house training and free advertising opportunities that PRIA has to offer.

What are the Benefits?

Continual Professional Development (CPD) and Career Enhancement

PRIA delivers outstanding Continual Professional Development opportunities to all members across all facets of the PR and communications industry. We also offer a broader spectrum of wider business content and issues which gives a well-rounded and multidisciplinary approach to enhance the careers of our members.

Organisational membership allows you access to personalised in house training with any of our national trainers. Potential courses include media interview skills, the connected brand, finance for non-finance managers and measurement and evaluation. However, these can be tailored to suit your organisation’s needs.

Industry and Thought Leadership

PRIA is dedicated to building the PR and communications industry through advocacy and thought leadership. We advocate for our members, uphold the highest ethical standards and are involved at all levels in the process of shaping the industry, from lobbying to representing our members’ interests in Parliament and other government bodies (eg Fairwork Australia).

Industry specific networking opportunities provide organisational members with the exclusive opportunity to meet and network with colleagues within their field.

The Golden Target Awards established in 1976 have a long history of recognising PR excellence. Specialist judging panels are appointed to assess entries against set criteria. Results of state winners are announced at State Awards Evenings in September and the prestigious national awards are an integral part of PRIA National Conference, in November.

Success in the Golden Target Awards provides members the opportunity to showcase their expertise and have their work celebrated by their peers.


There are no restrictions on which employees can be nominated as representatives under the PRIA organisational membership. Each nominee will be granted individual membership, graded according to their qualifications and experience and the organisational member can add and remove employees as circumstances change.
