Be an Industry Leader: Earn Your APR
Internationally recognized, the Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) integrates timeless communications principles with contemporary strategies and tactics. The process of earning your APR takes your skills to the next level by exposing you to today’s cutting-edge strategies and practices, assessing your skills to identify strengths and opportunities for growth, and demonstrating your personal and professional commitment to excellence.
Pursuing the APR gives you direct access to top public relations leaders — APR holders who will guide you through the process of achieving accreditation — and provides the tools you need to distinguish yourself as a top practitioner in the public relations field.
The Maine Public Relations Council is proud to be part of the Universal Accreditation Board (UAB), which oversees the APR designation.
The Maine Public Relations Council provides various opportunities to learn more about APR. Look for sessions throughout the year, generally the winter, spring and fall of every year, for events specific to APR and networking with other APRs. Please see our regular newsletter for announcements and details.
