IP survey – business practice issues related to Independent Practitioners

For independent practitioners, one of the best sources of information and knowledge are other independent practitioners.


Fortunately, every other year for the last eight years, Vincent Hazleton, APR, Ph.D., Fellow PRSA from Radford University in Virginia and Jay Rayburn, APR, Ph.D., Fellow PRSA from Florida State University have conducted a survey of business practice issues related to independent practitioners of public relations.


The survey results are made available to independent practitioners and other members of PRSA, FPRA, SPRF, and other public relations professional organizations. Professors Hazleton and Rayburn present the findings at the PRSA International Conference and publish the results in Tactics.


It’s now time to conduct the survey again.  If you are an independent practitioner, please click on the link below and take the survey.  It will only take about 10 minutes.  The researchers will gladly provide you with a copy of the results if you wish.


To “qualify” as an independent practitioner, you must be an individual whose primary income is derived from the practice of public relations. You should be in business for yourself, own your business and have no other full time professional staff, even though you may form alliances with other independent practitioners who provide services to your clients.


If this describes you, please take a few minutes to fill out the questionnaire. All information is confidential. Your answers will never be associated with your name.
