This year’s Counselors’ Network Winter Symposium is being held January 20-22, 2011 at the spectacular Lowe’s Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Studios in Orlando. While speakers are still being confirmed, a behind the scenes peek into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is rumored to be on the agenda.

Hotel reservations must be made by December 30th, 2010 to obtain a magically low rate secured for this event. Call: (866) 360-7395.
Counselors’ Network is currently open to any Universally Accredited member in good standing of FPRA who is actively engaged in providing counseling service, either as a full-time principal, officer, partner, or employee of a public relations firm, corporation, organization, or agency, and who has been in a counseling capacity for at least three years and has ten years of public relations experience.

Take note though, beginning November 1, 2011, membership in Counselors’ Network will be restricted to FPRA members who are CPRC’s (Certified Public Relations Counselors). Now may be the perfect time to pursue this additional level of credentialing for PR professionals. Contact credentialing co-chairs Mary Briggs at or Kara Winton at to learn more about the CPRC process.
