As a long-time member of the local and national Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), I’m a big believer in the benefits of membership to the professional association that supports your profession. As a past board member of the Puget Sound chapter of PRSA, I can attest to the benefits that involvement in PRSA can bring. I’m nationally accredited in public relations (APR) and strongly support professionals pursuing their accreditation; it’s a terrific learning process that can help take you to the next level in your career and we can all stand to learn something—right? I’m a past chair of the national Accreditation Marketing Committee (AMC) of PRSA, which led the work on the 50th anniversary of the APR in 2014.  I continue to serve on the committee as an advocate of the benefits of accreditation.

If you’re interested in PRSA, or the local Puget Sound PRSA chapter, please contact me; I’d love to chat about the organizations, explain how they can benefit your career and answer any questions. If you are considering the Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) program, I’m passionate about that and would welcome a conversation. Or, if you just want to chat about PR and the latest buzz or trend, give me a ring.  It’s a favorite subject and yes, I’ll buy the coffee.
