Thinking about APR?
Sign-up for our spring APR prep sessions!
Are you looking to develop a strategic PR mindset? Earning your Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) credential is one way to grow professionally and demonstrate your expertise. PRSA SE WI is hosting its first “cohort” of APR prep sessions in more than a decade. The prep sessions starting March 1, with the first and last meetings in-person, and 3 online meetings every other week in March and April.
What’s a cohort and why this approach?
The cohort approach to prep sessions mean that we meet a group every other week. Cohort groups share learning experiences that feature enriching discussions, cultivation of professional and personal networks, and a defined timeline and format to allow working professionals to pursue their APR without interfering with their day job. Because of their structure and regular meetings, cohorts naturally motivate most learners and keep them accountable.
Our APR prep sessions start out with an in-person info meeting to establish rapport and familiarity with other candidates and facilitators, and end with an in-person, mini rehearsal for the Panel Presentation. The $30 registration fee includes all five sessions, refreshments at two in-person sessions, and a copy of the study guide distributed the first day. Registration closes Feb. 22. For more information contact Ann Knabe at Ann.Knabe@bvk.com.
- The first session is from 5-7:30 p.m. on March 1 and will be at BVK, 250 W. Coventry Ct., Milwaukee, WI 53217, attendance in-person is required so candidates can meet their cohort.
- Following sessions will be online and are March 15, March 29, April 12 and a final in-person TBD.
