Publicity Club of Chicago membership opens the door to a range of opportunities for honing your professional skills and knowledge, exploring career paths and opportunities, expanding your network and exchanging information and ideas with public relations, marketing and communications peers throughout metropolitan Chicago and beyond.
Our members attest to the benefits. In a 2009 member survey, nearly 90 percent of respondents rate PCC good or excellent as a professional organization that provides value. And 90 percent said chances are good to excellent they will be a PCC member three years from now.
Among the many benefits that our hundreds of PCC members enjoy:
- Special reduced pricing on PCC programs —ranked by PCC members as among the club’s most valuable benefits for the networking and know-how they provide.
- Special reduced entry fees for the Golden Trumpet Awards, recognized as one of the most industry’s most prestigious awards programs.
