The German Public Relations Council is funded and supported by three professional associations: Deutsche Public Relations Gesellschaft (DPRG) [the German Public Relations Association], Gesellschaft Public Relations Agenturen [the Association of Public Relations Agencies] and Bundesverband deutscher Pressesprecher (BdKom) [the Federal Association of German Press Spokespersons]. By founding the support association, the professional organizations have fulfilled their responsibility to provide a secure legal and financial basis for the work of the German PR Council.
