The Chapter has monthly meetings as well as eight Special Interest Groups (Corporate & Employee Communications, Healthcare, Independent Counselors, Leader Board, Nonprofit, Technology, Travel & Tourism, and Young Professionals) that meet at various times.

On November 7, 2013, at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, the PRSA Georgia Chapter will host its Annual Awards Celebration, recognizing the programs and projects that represent the best in public relations in Georgia with the presentation of this year's Phoenix Awards.
