Greater Fort Worth PRSA wants to shine a light on the benefits of earning an APR by introducing LAMP, the Local APR Mentorship Program developed for the Fort Worth chapter. Hear from those who have gone through the accreditation process and hear from others who have moved past contemplation to commitment. An APR is more than three little letters behind your name; it is a mark of distinction for public relations professionals who demonstrate broad knowledge, strategic perspective and sound personal judgment. This year’s co-chairs of the APR Committee, Sandra Brodnicki, APR, and Linda Jacobson, APR, will lead the program. For more information about obtaining an APR, visit http://fortworthprsa.dividesignpros.com/accreditation.
