Just hear what Katherine Griffiths, a CAPIO member who recently completed her APR, says: “One of our core values at Tripepi Smith is to ‘Always Be Learning.’ I chose to focus on Accreditation in Public Relations to complement my existing strengths in writing, creative direction, and project management with deep exposure to public relations as a discipline and profession. This new understanding of public relations as a management function will help my team and my clients by elevating my capacity to think critically and plan strategically.”
