PIRATES (Print Interactive Radio and Television Educational Society) is dedicated to helping nonprofits to more effectively work with the media.

It is the only L.A. area association that offers regular opportunities for nonprofits, the media, and other communications professionals to network. Founded in 1955, PIRATES is a nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization and membership is open to media public affairs professionals, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and communications firms and individuals.

PIRATES' volunteer Board of Directors includes representatives from each of these areas. The organization embraces the broad spectrum of community needs and issues. PIRATES also embraces the rich diversity of our community, which is reflected in our membership and on our Board.

The organization and its members benefit from a close, ongoing relationship with the Southern California Broadcasters Association (SCBA). PIRATES' monthly events, renowned media mixers, and joint events with SCBA are designed to give members the tools and contacts they need to succeed.

In addition to monthly events, members receive an informative monthly newsletter, are listed in a directory that is distributed to the media, and can participate in PSA workshops and public affairs programs. The organization gives back to the community through an ongoing scholarship program for college students in the communications field.
