About IPRA

The International Public Relations Association (IPRA) was founded 60 years ago, when in the late 1940s several Dutch and British public relations (PR) practitioners discussed the notion of organizing public relations professionals into a transnational society. The objective was to raise standards of public relations practice worldwide and improve the quality of PR practitioners. IPRA was formally established in London on 1 May 1955. Today, IPRA is a worldwide organization with members in both established and emerging countries. It is governed by a geographical representative Board and run by a Secretariat in the UK. IPRA represents individual professionals, not agencies or companies. IPRA is recognized as an international non-governmental organization by the United Nations and has been granted consultative status by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
