FPRA offers its members two proactive and affordable accreditation opportunities: Accredited in Public Relations (APR) and Certified Public Relations Counselor (CPRC). Though they cost less than many one-day seminars, these accreditations will last a lifetime. If you’re interested in earning your APR or CPRC credential, please contact VP of Accreditation and Certification Laura Byrnes, APR, CPRC.
I’m probably the best example of a FPRA member that procrastinated, delayed, laid-low and just avoided the APR process for years, using the lame “I don’t have time excuse.” Why? I’m not sure, maybe it was the fear of the unknown or of not passing, but after I stepped up to the plate I could only think, “What took me so long?” It was a great personal and knowledge organizing experience and a positive step forward in my career development. Don’t delay, drop the lame excuses and make the commitment now.
