What do our members
say about PPRA?

“For me PPRA means friendship, assistance, learning, fun and pride in my profession and the wonderful people who make it work. The great thing about PPRA is the generous egalitarian spirit of its members. Everyone is forthcoming, friendly and ready to help everyone else. This has made a world of difference in my career but, more importantly, it has enriched my life and inspired me to do good.”

Dan Cirucci, PPRA Hall of Fame 2003, PPRA Past President 2001 – 2002 

“PPRA for me has been a constant and a dependable network of friends and colleagues, who have been resources for information, collaboration and new business leads. Even though I have been a member for almost 30 years, PPRA’s speaker’s luncheons and special events provide me with new and current information that I can adapt to my business and clients.”
