2019 is the 50th Anniversary of the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA), and the association is announcing a raft of celebrations to mark its 50th year.

The PRCA was founded on 5th November, 1969, as a membership body for PR consultancies. It began accepting in-house members in 2009, and in 2011 broadened its remit to include individuals. Over the past 50 years, it has helped launch PR associations all around the world, and operates its own offices in Singapore and Dubai. It also manages ICCO, the voice of PR consultancies around the world. With well over 30,000 members, the PRCA is now the largest PR professional body in the world.

The PRCA will be launching a wide range of events and content as part of the anniversary celebrations:

Special events in London: A Golden Anniversary Fellows debate; a Golden Anniversary Party; and a Christmas lunch at House of Lords.

Events across the regions and nations: Conferences, Leaders Lunches, and Suppers across England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

Special content: An anniversary book launch; what PR will look like in 50 years; 50 people who shaped our industry, 50 future leaders; and 50 things the PRCA has achieved.
