The Universal Accreditation Board (UAB) is giving away an iPad 2 and sponsoring a month-long series of activities to commemorate Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) Month in April. Events will communicate the value and benefits of the APR certification for public relations professionals and employers, while increasing awareness of the APR Program among the business community.
One highlight is a “Show the World Your APR contest,” which challenges each currently accredited professional to join the APR “sales team” and prominently display the credential as part of their email signatures and business cards. One randomly selected winner will receive an iPad 2, and year’s worth of data service, donated by The Frause Group, Inc.
All APR-certified professionals also are being asked to use PRSA’s Invite-a-Peer tool during the month of April, to encourage other professionals to pursue their APR certification. The month-long series of activities also features free and paid webinars introducing public relations professionals to the APR program.
