PRSA-SEW Teams Up with PRSA-Madison and PRSA-NEW to Host APR JumpStart Session

Accountants have their CPAs. Architects have their AIAs. And you’ve heard your PR friends and colleagues talking about APR for years. Just what is this formal credentialing process and how can it help you sharpen your craft and distinguish yourself?

A group of fellow APRs from the Southeast Wisconsin, Madison and Northeast Wisconsin PRSA chapters will answer all those questions and more at the Wisconsin APR JumpStart Orientation Session. The session is open to all PRSA members with five years in the profession and includes 4 hours of action-packed information from practitioners who have been there, done that…and believe you can do it, too!
