About PRINZ

The Public Relations Institute of New Zealand (PRINZ) was established in 1954 to represent the public relations and communication management profession in New Zealand.

PRINZ is what brings our profession together and makes us just that - a profession. As a united group we establish standards for the industry by continually lifting our own and our peers' knowledge and performance through our involvement with PRINZ in many different ways.
Jane Dodd, Director The Clique, PRINZ Fellow and former President

Today more than 1200 PRINZ members make up a professional network of dynamic and vibrant public relations and communication management practitioners.

PRINZ members are part of a growing, professionally focussed membership organisation dedicated to best practice, professional communications.

Our continuing professional development programme, APR qualification, networking opportunities and events, industry awards, resources and international alliances make PRINZ membership a great choice for professional public relations and communication management practitioners.
