Congratulations to Phyllis Ershowsky, APR, CPRC; Pam Nulman, APR, CPRC; Carolyn Rogers, APR, CPRC and Karen Ryan, APR, CPRC for achieving the ultimate level of professionalism within the Florida Public Relations Association – the Certified Public Relations Counselor credentials!

The certification process was developed to recognize professional growth and achievement of senior members who have already earned the APR designation.

Candidates for CPRC must be a member of the Florida Public Relations Association and have a minimum of 10 years of professional practice in public relations.

The exam, which is administered throughout the year, consists of a written section, comprised of case studies, and an oral component, which requires the candidate to make a presentation to a panel of certified evaluators.

CPRC publicly says to senior management, boards of directors, clients and peers that you are officially among the cream of the crop of our profession. In addition, earning the CPRC credential is also a “lead by example” opportunity that says to peers and your staff that you value professional development, accreditation and certification. As members of FPRA, we are dedicated to enhancing the profession. Thank you for encouraging others to pursue their maximum potential with your example.
