The RPIE Practicum: Jump start your Cumbre Nominations with these APR Principles

During APR Month, NMPRSA is hosting a practicum that pairs the principles of the Accreditation of Public Relations (APR) curriculum with the criteria for winning Cumbre entries. By studying the foundations of Research, Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation (RPIE), you will be well on your way to preparing for the APR process. During this interactive workshop, participants can use current projects and examine them with the RPIE lens, also the key to a successful Cumbre nomination.

The RPIE practicum is set for Thursday, April 28 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Silver Room at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center located at 2401 12th Street, NW.

For those that join us in person, PIE will be served.
