GFW PRSA Introduces LAMP: Local Accreditation Mentorship Program

APRLogo-LRThe Greater Fort Worth Chapter of PRSA is committed to helping APR candidates achieve their goal of accreditation. That’s why the chapter’s Accreditation Committee has created the new Local APR Mentorship Program, or LAMP.

The purpose of LAMP is to shine a light on the benefits on obtaining the Accredited in Public Relations designation. At the same time, the chapter will be positioned to offer mentorship and guidance to those who are interested in obtaining their APR.

Accreditation Committee co-chairs Sandra Brodnicki, APR, and Linda Jacobson, APR, will roll out the program throughout the coming year to culminate in the official 50th anniversary in 2014 of the profession’s only national post-graduate certification program.

With the help of PRSA members Chip Hanna, Margaret Ritsch, APR, Richie Escovedo, Chris Bryan, Bill Lawrence, APR, Fellow PRSA, and Andra Bennett-House, APR, the pair introduced the program during the chapter’s April 10 luncheon. Andra Bennett-House, APR, brought down the house with “I Want You After My Name,” which was performed to the tune of “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.” (See video below.)

In addition, the team presented its case via a Saturday Night Live-inspired presentation, the Accreditation News Network (ANN), at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth. Special thanks goes out to Roxo Student LyTer Green, a senior at Texas Christian University, who provided much-need b-roll that answered the question, “What is an APR?”

If you are a prospective APR candidate and would like more information, visit or contact Sandra at 817-572-1556 or or Linda at 817-228-1862 or
