Leading The Way for PR Agencies, Clients & PR Pros

CooperKatz is a proud, long-time member of the PR Council, which represents more than 100 of Americas leading communications firms. Its mission is to advocate for the role of PR and communications firms as vital strategic business partners.


Members represent the premier global, regional and specialty agencies across every discipline and practice area. Our leaders at CooperKatz have served the PR Council in multiple capacities, including as members of the Board of Directors and active contributors to its COO and HR Roundtable communities. We also fully embrace the Councils Code of Ethics & Principles which addresses best practices around disclosure, transparency and ethical business practices.


The World’s Local Agency

As a member of PRGN, CooperKatz is part of a hand-selected network of more than 50 independent public relations agencies serving major markets across Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America.


PRGN agencies are all leaders in their respective regions. They help clients combine top in-market expertise with global reach – and the flexibility to scale up or down across countries or regions as needed.


PRGN agency leaders meet in person twice a year to share best practices, collaborate on business and build deep personal relationships. This makes all the difference when it comes to achieving cross-border communications goals.
