Renew Your Membership Today

October 9, 2014

By renewing your FPRA membership, you are setting yourself up for another powerful year of networking, professional development and personal growth. FPRA is one of the best investments you can make in your career. Renew today for a more prosperous tomorrow.

Renewing is easy! Simply follow one of the steps below:

Oops! Have you misplaced your renewal form or just don’t have it handy? No worries, click the link below:

Your FPRA membership will expire on October 31, 2014.  Yes, that’s Halloween!  To maintain your active membership status, renewal forms must be received no later than November 1.

Please note: the State office has a new policy this year re renewals: A change in policy occurred last year with each member who completes a membership application being charged a processing fee of $35. This is no longer a one-time fee. In addition, a member who does not renew by December 31, 2014, will be charged the full $180 renewal fee plus a late fee of $25 regardless of when they renew/rejoin through December 31, 2015. This policy change was put in place to prevent members from renewing in the middle of the year and receiving prorated dues. The prorated dues are only available to new members or those who have not been members for at least one year.


Why FPRA?

FPRA Orlando VP of Membership

When I reflect on the tremendous membership benefits of FPRA, three words come to mind: Opportunity. Value. Investment.

As the oldest association for public relations professionals, FPRA prides itself on offering powerful professional development and networking opportunities. By joining FPRA, you not only connect with a strong network of local PR professionals, you have the chance to meet and learn from more than 1,000 like-minded professionals across the state.

With the cost of a yearly membership at $175, it is an extraordinary value and the most affordable investment you can make for your career.

If you haven’t already done so, I urge you to renew your membership, as the unmatched benefits you receive far outweigh the cost. Additionally, we will raffle off a $25 gift card to those who renew their membership by November 29.

To renew your membership today, simply follow one of the steps below:

  • Call the FPRA State Office at 941.365.2135 ext. 306
  • Fax your renewal form (link to .pdf of renewal form) to 941.906.1556
  • Email your renewal form to state@fpra.org
  • Mail your renewal form to 40 Sarasota Center Blvd., Suite 107, Sarasota, FL 34240
