IPRA, the International Public Relations Association, has signed a co-operation agreement with the Public Relations Verband Austria (PRVA).

Reacting to the agreement, Julia Wippersberg, President of PRVA says: “We are delighted about further expanding PRVA’s international network and contacts through a closer cooperation with IPRA and its members. I am convinced, PRVA and our over 800 members from all communication sectors in Austria will benefit. At the same time, we hope to be able to assist and contribute to the success and development of IPRA’s services and events in the future”.


These agreements add to our extending network of co-operation with PR groups around the world,” explains IPRA President Bart de Vries. “Under these we hope to provide help where it is needed and to expand IPRA’s Golden World Awards programme to new areas of PR practice.”
