As a member of the Public Affairs Council, every employee of your organization— worldwide and including all subsidiaries — is entitled to access the full range of benefits and services, including individualized counsel from our staff experts, discounts for nearly 100 highly rated executive education events and connections to an ever-growing community of professionals. For a comprehensive list of members-only resources and services, click here.

Are you new to your organization, or do you need an overview of your membership benefits? Membership orientation sessions are offered throughout the year (both in person and via teleconference) and review all of the Council’s major services, including community building with other public affairs professionals, executive education and access to staff expertise.

If you truly engage yourself with the Council, you may be selected as the Volunteer of the Year. Each year, the Council’s Executive Committee presents this award to recognize an individual from a member organization who has made an outstanding contribution not only to our association but to the public affairs profession.
