What is the APR?  A symbol of professionalism and a credential that signifies reaching the highest standards in public relations.

 Are you ready to earn your accreditation? During this one-day comprehensive session, you’ll learn what it takes to achieve accreditation and the variety of resources available to you. The entire process will be reviewed, including how to prepare, what resources you need, THE INSIDE SCOOP ON THE NEW PANEL PRESENTATION and how to ace the computer-based exam. You’ll also meet a recent APR and hear about their experience.

The class is taught by Jeff Paterson, APR, executive director of Empower and adjunct professor at Buffalo State, and Barb Byers, APR, director of constituent communications for the UB Division of Philanthropy and Alumni Engagement.

Cost: $50 (non-refundable)
Registration deadline: Monday, March 27
