What is Public Relations (PR)?

What is Public Relations? “Public relations” is just another way of saying “taking
care of our relationships.”

Why PR is important “Our relations with the public enable us to share this message broadly so that those who might benefit from our program of recovery can find us.” For a deeper understanding, we recommend all members read The PR Handbook.
