26 great reasons why you should join the PRCA as an Individual Member
Independent contractors and freelancers
We understand the challenges of working for yourself, so we provide you with the ready-made network to support you in your role, and the tools to support your micro-business.
Win new business – Independent consultants and freelancers can join The Work Crowd and PR Cavalry. You are also invited to attend group training sessions and will have access to bespoke online webinars. Training will include how to best use and get the most out of the platform; how to build your own personal brand and top tips on how to both win and retain new work.
Grow your network – The PRCA hosts many learning and networking events designed specifically for our individual members. We also have a dedicated Independent Consultants Group – powered by The PR Network.
Individual CMS (Communication Management Standard) - Our independent consultant and freelance members are encouraged to complete CMS. Completing CMS will enhance your reputation in front of clients and within the industry.
Hot desks and meeting rooms - We recognise that independent professionals need productive spaces to work in, so we have teamed up with NearDesk to provide simple access to hot desks and meeting rooms nationwide. With a range of professional environments around the UK, all equipped with high internet access, you can either book a desk space in advance or simply turn up. And touching in and touching out with a NearDesk card means you only pay for what you use. There's no endless paperwork either, just set up your payment details and receive one invoice each month to cover all your usage.
Speaking, training and facilitation opportunities - PRCA partners with SpeakerHub.com - Europe's fastest-growing community of professional, independent, or specialist public speakers and trainers. We are working with SpeakerHub to develop a specialist group of speakers from the PR & Communications industry across Europe. This service is completely free of charge for you, and is a great visibility opportunity as well as the potential to earn money from speaking engagements. We have even negotiated a SpeakerHub Pro Account for the first year of your participation.
