Happy 50th! to PRSA's Accreditation in Public Relations Program...and many more...

50AnnAPR.jpg

 

Background from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA):

"2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the Accreditation in Public Relations (APR), the profession’s only national credential. In addition, to celebrating the APR’s position as the industry’s gold standard for professional excellence, April has been designated as APR Month."  

Maggie Chamberlin Holben, APR, has been an accredited PRSA member since 1985. 

Here's a look back at Maggie's announcement from 1985 (no she hasn't been accredited the full 50 years that APR has existed)...that's a Columbia portable computer with dual floppy disk drives in the photo  (you had to know DOS language to run it). The printer was dot matrix. Boom boxes were the iPod of the day. Maggie liked cats back then (notice the ceramic one on her desk):
