Public Relations Consultants Association
The Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA) is a trade association for the public relations sector in the United Kingdom. It was founded in 1969. The association lobbies on behalf of its member companies and also provides a forum for sharing information.
Originally an organisation for PR agencies, its membership includes 300 agency members, including most of the top 100 UK consultancies; 100 in-house communications teams from multinationals, UK charities and public sector organisations. The PRCA launched in-house membership in February 2009 and individual membership in October 2011.
The PRCA was one of three organisations which founded the UK lobbying self-regulation body, the UK Public Affairs Council, in 2010 - alongside the Association of Professional Political Consultants and the Chartered Institute of Public Relations. However, the PRCA resigned from the UKPAC the following year, in December 2011.
