GFW PRSA April Luncheon

Mentors play an important role in the Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) process, from encouraging members to seek APR to guiding candidates through to passing the exam. At the GFW PRSA luncheon on Wednesday, April 11, Malizy Scruggs, APR, media relations practice leader at The Starr Conspiracy and APR Chair of the Dallas PRSA Chapter, will talk about why APR matters, present case studies on the challenges associated with successfully mentoring candidates, and give examples of chapters who do mentoring right.

At the end of the presentation, candidates and potential mentors are invited to participate in a “Mentor Match” to begin building a strong mentorship program in our chapter.

When: April 11, 2018 11:00 am – 1:30 pm
