Three Southern Nevada Public Relations Professionals Earn Accreditation in Public Relations Certification

Accelerated “APR Ready to Roll” program now accepting applications for spring 2021 cohort

(Jan. 21, 2021 – Las Vegas, NV) – Three southern Nevada public relations professionals recently earned their Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) certification. 

Carrie Amox, public relations consultant, Rina Foster, 84 Communications founder/principal, and MacKenzie Ruta, communications associate, Cleveland Clinic – Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, earned this prestigious distinction, which is the only nationally recognized accreditation for public relations professionals.

Earning the APR demonstrates the PR professionals’ mastery of today’s strategic communications and commitment to lifelong learning and ethical standards. PR professionals undergo a rigorous application, portfolio interview and professional certification testing to earn this designation. Following successful testing, APR professionals must then achieve maintenance and recertification through leadership positions, mentoring opportunities, continuing education, publishing and public speaking opportunities and pro bono public relations activities.

The Public Relations Society of America of Las Vegas (PRSA LV) chapter is offering its Spring 2021 “APR Ready to Roll” with a virtual meeting on Jan. 26 to learn more about the APR program, followed by a multi-week application and educational and test preparation series beginning Feb. 2, 2021.
