Fall APR Sessions Start Next Month

Earn your APR: Information Session on Accreditation is September 11

Interested in earning the Accreditation in Public Relations (APR)?  Now is your opportunity to learn more about the process and decide if you want to take your professional development to the next level.

On Monday, Sept. 11, the Orlando area chapters of PRSA and FPRA will kick off a free, nine-session workshop series to help you navigate the accreditation process, organize your portfolio for your panel presentation, and prepare for the APR examination. Workshop topics are based on the APR Study Guide and cover broad, foundational knowledge, strategic perspective, and sound professional judgment.

The Fall Workshop begins with an information session from 6-7 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2017, at HD Supply (501 West Church Street, Orlando, FL 32805 one block from Amway Center; free parking).

The full workshop series will continue Monday evenings from 6-7 p.m. from Sept. 18 through November 2017.

Earning the APR credential is a mark of distinction and demonstrates your commitment to the public relations profession and ethical practice. Practitioners who have earned their APR say the process helped them develop both their skills and professionalism, receive bonuses or salary increases and even has been the deciding factor between two similar job candidates. Military public affairs practitioners planning to earn their APR+M may also benefit from attending the workshop.

Don’t miss this chance to learn and network with local, practicing colleagues.
