The Independent Practitioners Group of PRSA-Los Angeles

has been renamed to Independent Practitioners Alliance (IPA)

We are proud of the group and its progress in realizing its mission of supporting and enhancing the role of the independent practitioner. Collaborations have been formed;   business has been shared; and challenges and successes have been discussed. As an added bonus, friendships have been forged.

We have had wonderful guest speakers who graciously provided interesting and informative information. And we’ve had stimulating roundtable discussions among our members, exchanging ideas, resources and information.
It is our hope that we can continue to make IPA even better. You can help! We are eager to increase the size of our Steering Committee. If you are interested in serving on the Committee to make IPA even more valuable to participants, please let us know.

Some of our near-term goals include:

  • Creating a referral database that will be included on the PRSA-LA Web site
  • Creating a Public Relations/Marketing committee to help spread the word about IPG activities, and about the value of retaining independent practitioners.
  • Providing IPAers with another year of interesting and informative programs.

We look forward to seeing you at upcoming events.
