Joining CPRS Hamilton helped me to jumpstart my career transition to communications and public relations. Joining the mentorship program helped me build my professional knowledge and confidence, and volunteering as a board member gave me the chance to give back to a community that has always shown me support.

The opportunities I’ve had to advance my career have been directly connected to the positive professional reputation I’ve built as an active CPRS member. I highly recommend membership to any professional looking to make an impact in communications.
