2009 CPRS-VI AGM Annual report

  1. 1. CPRS-VI ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING MAY 21, 2009 THE YEAR IN REVIEW
  2. 2. Accreditation The CPRS accreditation program allows practitioners with five or more years of experience, who are members of CPRS, to earn an APR (Accredited in Public Relations) designation. The purpose of the CPRS accreditation process is to assess the candidate's experience and competence in the professional practice of public relations and to recognize this achievement through the APR designation. 30 per cent of CPRS-VI members are accredited. For more information, please contact Accreditation Chair Karla Sandwith.
