In planning meetings, I am the first (sometimes the only) person to ask, “What are the goals and objectives of this?” Never operate without purpose! It’s like playing chess – you make moves to win, not to just move pieces around a board. Part of having a strategic mindset is “beginning with the end in mind.” This habit, as specified…
Someone recently asked me why I pursued the APR credential. The APR is the Public Relations profession’s only voluntary post-graduate certification program representing the most prestigious credential in the communications industry. I highly recommend the APR. Social media has accelerated the number of people entering the PR profession – in a bad way. You hear of reports of unethical edits…
There are so many public relations and marketing professionals who criticize the APR.
Yet, here I am, studying for the APR exam and hoping to achieve this monumental credential before the year is out. I am not fazed.
I don’t mind the chatter and I don’t let other people’s definition of the APR persuade my decision to go for the credential. Getting the APR for me is showing my commitment to public relations. That’s it! I love the aspect of striving for a higher standard – this is much needed in PR due to those in the profession who give it a bad name. Even when I was a news reporter I didn’t mind PR people or give them names like “flack,” but I understand they were just doing their job. And on some days, I needed them to help me with my stories, give me access to the CEO or official, or help me round out my perspective.
I appreciate PRSA recognizing that it was time to update the credential and do better. This is a positive step in diversifying the types of people who obtain the APR, and give it more meaning to those who already possess it.
