Congratulations to Melissa Simontis, APR!
The exam tests the candidate’s knowledge, skills and abilities in the practice of public relations, and the preparation is a time consuming challenge of reading, memorizing and studying. Achieving the APR designation is evidence of Melissa’s high degree of professional expertise and is a testament to her personal determination. Congratulations, Melissa!
For those of you who are considering making this commitment to your professional development, it may interest you to learn that the APR status is recognized not only by FPRA, but also PRSA and seven other PR associations. And, perhaps more importantly, an accredited practitioner generally earns 20 percent more than non-Accredited members.
