Stand out from the crowd and become accredited in public relations (APR). APR is a mark of distinction for public relations professionals who demonstrate their commitment to the profession and to its ethical practice. Candidates earn accreditation based on broad knowledge, strategic perspective and sound professional judgment.
Learn more about accreditation at an information session on Monday, September 12. We will provide an overview of the APR process and the free eight-week study program. All interested candidates are invited to attend. Also, APRs who have recently completed the process will be available to answer questions and offer advice.
Information Session and Study Program Kick-off:
Monday, September 12 at 6:00 p.m.
Location to be determined
Visit the official Web site of the Universal Accreditation Board at http://www.praccreditation.org for the Candidate’s Process Chart for the Examination for Accreditation in Public Relations and the Eligibility Form.
APR Study Program Workshops
APR workshops are free to active FPRA or PRSA members and will be held weekly from September 12 through November 14 at a convenient time and location for participating candidates. The one-hour sessions are led by seasoned APR facilitators to guide a discussion of core topics that will be covered on the APR computerized exam. The workshops are not required “classes” but rather a professional development networking group of mentors prepared to help you succeed.
If you are interested in starting the APR process or would like to learn more about it, please contact: Stefanie Macfarlane, APR– 321.578.1722 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
