IPA: Supporting Independent and Freelance Practitioners

PRSA-LA’s Independent Practitioners Alliance (IPA) is the region’s most dynamic professional organization for public relations professionals who are independent consultants and freelancers. It brings together like-minded peers who offer advice, share experiences, and provide the support and collaboration entrepreneurs crave.

Participation in IPA programs is open to PRSA members and non-members, including those belonging to other regional and national communications and public relations associations.

IPA’s bimonthly roundtable sessions feature industry veterans sharing their experience and expertise in areas critical to solo practice management, including:

  • The personal and professional challenges of running an independent practice,
  • Strategies for bringing in new business,
  • Establishing alliances, virtual agencies and partnerships, and
  • What agencies look for when hiring outside consultants.
