As of December 6, 2013, BuckyTM PR received national affiliation recognition by its professional liaison, Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). As BuckyTM PR’s parent organization, PRSA recognizes only the most accomplished student-run public relations firms. As detailed on PRSSA’s national website: “Though there are more than 100 student-run firms around the country operated PRSSA Chapters, only those among the upper echelons are PRSSA nationally affiliated. Firms with this designation have successfully gone through an application process to ensure the firm is soundly based in three areas: a solid PRSSA/PRSA connection, a high level of professionalism and an effective structure.”
