APR—what does it stand for and why should you care? The Accredited in Public Relations (APR) credential is a voluntary certification program that tests a public relations professional’s knowledge, skills and abilities. More than 5,000 of the top PR practitioners in the country and 20 percent of PRSA Hawaii chapter members hold this credential. Shouldn't you? Now, PRSA Hawaii is making it even easier to earn the credential by offering $500 scholarships for the second year in a row to Hawaii chapter members to pursue their APR.
If you're curious about the APR credential, or are interested in pursuing it but don't think you have the qualifications, time or money, then join us for this talk-story session with PRSA Hawaii APR Chair Kristen Bonilla, APR, and Brook DeWalt, APR+M, Fellow PRSA, a Hawaii chapter member who also serves on the Universal Accreditation Board, which oversees the APR program.
Join us for this free information session to learn more about the APR credential and its value, the process, and what's involved, as well as PRSA Hawaii's annual APR scholarship. Current Hawaii chapter APRs and chapter members who are currently going through the process will be in attendance to share their experience and the impact it has had on their careers.
Complimentary lunch will be provided. Please RSVP by 12 p.m. on August 17, 2015.
Parking in the Bishop Square garage WILL NOT be validated. Ample parking is available in downtown Honolulu with one of the more reasonable lots being the Alii Tower garage (off Alakea Street).
