Making the most of spring and APR Month

The snow has melted and baseball has started. It can only mean one thing: Spring is here! Bring on the season of renewal, new growth and transition into summer.

I invite you to become involved in PRSA Central Iowa Chapter!

Our board is always looking for committee members to help with sponsorships, professional development, developing a non-profit plan, awards and OctoPRfest. If you’re a new member, this is a great way to meet other public relations professionals. These are also perfect opportunities for longtime members who would like to re-engage with the chapter. We value your expertise and welcome your input. It’s never too late to volunteer! If you are interested, contact me at rooftm@wellmark.com.

Celebrating Accreditation in Public Relations Month

When it comes to APRs, our chapter is one the highest ranked nationally. And, I can speak from experience — it’s because of the leadership within our chapter who helps candidates prepare.

At the start of each calendar year, the accreditation chair and accreditation chair-elect, put together an APR prep course. While this course may seem daunting to most, only you can determine if it’s worth your time.  

I strongly believe receiving my APR and being involved within the chapter has led me to gain mentors, mentor others and grow in my career — all things I don’t take for granted.

I hope with the change of seasons, it sparks inspiration for you to consider becoming more involved or re-engaged with the chapter, or even taking on a challenge such as earning your APR.
