Ask two different PRSA members what they think the greatest value of PRSA membership is and you will get two very different answers. In these budget conscious times, people are looking to maximize their professional investment to position themselves more positively in their current work or to ratchet up their resume and LinkedIn profile as they search for a job.
- Accreditation (APR) – A doctor has a MD, a lawyer has a JD…APR is your next step in to international recognition of your public relations prowess.
- Empire Awards – Let the theorists debate the best way to measure PR…an Empire Award on your desk is a powerful symbol of exemplary communications skills.
- Local, District and National Volunteer Opportunities – Expand your network of PR professionals from across the city, state and country and get involved in planning the future of PRSA. Meet with Capital Region Board members and get the scoop on upcoming programs.
