The UW - Eau Claire chapter of PRSSA was established in 2004-2005 by Dr. Ed Frederick, as faculty advisor, Barbara Arnold, as sponsoring professional member, and three students. The chapter has grown consistently since its creation. The organization is run by students, which consists of a five-member executive board and its members. The executive board positions include president, vice-president, treasurer, secretary, and public relations director.
