Founded in 1951, the Baltimore Public Relations Council is the oldest organization in the Baltimore, Maryland area devoted to public relations. BPRC provides a forum for public relations professionals to exchange ideas with their peers and to mold ethical standards for their work, thereby improving their effectiveness.

Members must devote the majority of their work time to the paid professional practice of public relations. Emeritus membership is granted upon request to any fully retired member. Student members must be juniors or seniors enrolled at a Maryland college or university who have an interest in public relations.

Meetings are usually held in the morning on the third Tuesday of each month, except during the summer. The Board of Directors meets at least six times during the year.
