Did you know… April is APR month?

In the world of communication professionals, the Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) is a credential earned by public relations and communication practitioners who commit to the profession through ethical practices and sound judgment, strategic perspectives, knowledge of best practices and the use of the research/planning/implementation/evaluation (RPIE) process.

Accreditation is a mark of distinction and is achieved through a rigorous process. Practitioners are required to present their knowledge to Accredited peers for review. This is followed by a comprehensive examination that tests a candidate’s knowledge of the field. Perhaps most importantly, the credential signifies an understanding and commitment to a Code of Ethics, and ability to think and plan at the strategic level.

Learn more about APR and explore the resources available at www.praccreditation.org.

Sponsor a PR Graduate and help them to become a PRSA Associate Member

PRSA-IE has a rich history of mentoring, coaching and encouraging public relations students. The Board would love to see our members partner in this endeavor by donating to sponsor recent graduates who want to become PRSA members. Over the years, many valuable general members and a few board members joined our ranks by receiving a sponsorship for associate membership. Recent graduates can join for $60. Plus the chapter membership.

We will acknowledge donors at our each event and on our website and social media posts. Please contact mpearson@calbaptist.edu for information.
