Founded in 1939, the San Francisco Public Relations Round Table is one of the oldest PR organizations in the nation. The Round Table welcomes senior members of PR firms and senior-level PR and communications managers in business, professional, trade, non-profit, and government organizations who want to keep in touch with other colleagues in communications and support our scholarship fund for upcoming PR students.
At our monthly luncheon meetings in downtown San Francisco we hear from leading local journalists, PR specialists, and practitioners in PR-related fields.
We are proud of our tradition of informal exchange with guests from the media, who give us their perspective on trends, issues, and personalities in the news, and with other professionals who share their experience in all aspects of communications—from handling a major transportation crisis to surviving a merger, from launching a complex new product to second-guessing the CEO.
If you want to sharpen your professional insights and expand your network of experienced peers, we encourage you to join us at one of our upcoming meetings.
Our meetings provide an opportunity for entertaining clients or colleagues, and our annual Holiday Party supports the Public Relations Round Table’s Phillip N. McCombs Scholarship Fund for San Francisco Bay Area university students studying public relations.
Members receive our annual, members-only roster of top Bay Area communicators and our monthly E-Bulletin informing them about upcoming events and colleagues in the news.
The 70th Anniversary Video
The story of San Francisco Public Relations Round Table was shared in a video tribute at the recent 70th anniversary party.
Produced with support from Wells Fargo Bank and the pro bono services of member Eric Steckel, the video recounts the group’s beginning and history, including observances from some of our long-time members.
