Melissa Morante, 2021 PRSA Palm Beach President

Spring is a time of renewal, and here at PRSA Palm Beach we are here for our members who are interested in giving their professional lives a jump start. In addition to our awesome programs, such as our March 11 session on Media Training C-Suite Executives with Joel Staley, our chapter is offering support to all members who are interested in pursuing Accreditation in Public Relations.

The Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) credential certifies your drive, professionalism, and principles, setting you apart from your peers and positioning you as a leader and mentor in the competitive public relations field.

The APR:

  • Asserts professional competence
  • Communicates professional expertise, plus personal and professional dedication and values
  • Reflects progressive public relations industry practices and high standards

During these challenging times, many people may not know that online options are available for those who have been studying and are interested in continuing their accreditation journey. PRSA’s APR Boot Camp allows busy PR pros to complete the entire process in a three-day period. The next boot camp will be held virtually April 28-30. The deadline to register is March 31.

Boot camp not your thing? Many chapters, including ours, will allow candidates to complete their Panel Presentation through videoconferencing platforms. An online option also is available for those ready to take the computer-based Examination for Accreditation in Public Relations (EAPR). 

Lastly, we are planning a virtual lunch and learn session in April that will provide valuable information about the APR, and we plan to host our annual APR workshops later this year. Stay tuned for more details.

All the best,
Melissa Morante,

2021 President, Palm Beach Chapter
Public Relations Society of America

P.S. Looking forward to seeing you at our upcoming event!
