This committee promotes APR (Accredited in Public Relations) as a mark of distinction for professionals, motivates non-APR chapter members to pursue APR and prepare for the APR exam and coaches and mentors APR candidates throughout the process.
The Business Outreach committee assists the chapter’s committees and Board in promoting the role of public relations and PRSA to the business community in Minnesota and beyond.
This committee works to recognize area communications professionals for excellence in public relations through the annual Minnesota PRSA Classics awards. The committee also promotes interaction and learning for PRSA members through judging opportunities, award entry preparation events and the annual Classics awards banquet.
The Communications committee conducts all internal and external communications for the chapter, and assures Minnesota PRSA members are up-to-date on the latest information on all chapter initiatives, news and events. The committee is responsible for the content and distribution of all of the chapter’s main communication vehicles and media relations related to chapter programming, including:
The Student Relations committee supports 11 Minnesota PRSA-affiliated Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapters. The committee helps these students learn more about the profession and PRSA, as well as prepare for a career in public relations, by providing opportunities for students to interact with professionals, network with potential employers and gain experience in the field.
