Celebrate the Fourth of July with your APR

Every summer, Americans commemorate Independence Day. But this year, your Fourth of July festivities could celebrate a personal revolution in your skills as a public relations professional.

On February 22, PRSA Miami Chapter will kick off a series of classes to help members earn the Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) credential. The course is designed to prepare candidates to successfully complete the APR process by July 4.

If you have five years or more of PR experience, this free course is a great opportunity for you to put the coveted “APR” designation after your name, signifying to employers, clients and colleagues that you expertly practice our craft in today’s dynamic business environment.

The course is a joint effort between the PRSA Miami and Gulfstream Chapters.  The program includes weekly instructional classes that cover the competencies tested by the APR exam.

Each Miami Chapter candidate will also be assigned an APR-credentialed mentor to help them through the portfolio presentation and other projects involved in preparing for the exam. As an added incentive, the first three Miami Chapter members who successfully complete the APR process this year will receive a $100 stipend.

Please read over the material posted on the following link and mark your calendar to join us on February 22 at 6:30 p.m. for a casual informational session that will fully explain the course details.
