RENO, Nev. – The local chapter of the Public Relations Society of America is encouraging public relations professionals to advance their skills by shifting their work from the tactical approach to a strategic plan.

The group is offering a free breakfast program Wednesday, April 27, on becoming accredited in public relations.

The program will address questions about the accreditation process and what participants will learn in preparing for the accreditation test.
