To achieve accredited status, candidates undergo rigorous evaluation of the skills, experience and strategic thinking necessary to practice public relations at the highest level. They must also demonstrate thorough understanding of the ethical practice of public relations and adhere to the CPRS Code of Professional Standards.
This year's APR cohort will be honoured by their peers on the first day of Transformation 2020, the CPRS National Conference in Quebec City, May 24-26, 2020.
