IPRA reaches out to the newly founded Malawi PR Society


IPRA, the International Public Relations Association, has signed a co-operation agreement with the Public Relations Society of Malawi (PRSM). Under the agreement, inter alia, the organisations will exchange materials such as IPRA’s Thought Leadership essays and know-how to help with the development of the PR profession.


Reacting to the agreement, Lewis Msasa, President PRSM commented: “We are really pleased to enter into a mutually beneficial partnership with an organization of such global repute. We believe this will exponentially help PRSM members grow in their profession and practice the trade in accordance with current trends, benchmarks and principles. As a young professional body, being part of an international network not only bolsters our standing but also allows us to share knowledge with global experts on how to take the PR profession to the next level in Malawi.”


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