So you’ve signed up for the L.E.A.P. certification, now what? Now you need to confirm your interest in the certification by accepting our invitation to join the Ning site created specifically for L.E.A.P. members. This site can only be viewed by the Public Relations Advisory Board members and your fellow L.E.A.P.sters. Once you’ve been approved as a member of the site, begin blogging about your experiences and tracking your points.
Below is an example from the L.E.A.P. website:
On September 17, 2009, I attended the Mocktail Reception to kickoff the new L.E.A.P. Certification Program at GSU. At the event, I had the opportunity to network with PR professionals and celebrate the beginning of this new program. (Leadership “Networking” 1 point)
As you will note in the example, you should indicate the area in which the points can be counted and the point equivalency of that activity. There are several FAQ’s listed on the site to answer your questions regarding points necessary for certification, site usage, portfolio review/interview schedule, etc. Don’t forget the public relations faculty is available to answer questions as well.
So get in there and take the L.E.A.P. You have several experiences to share with the Public Relations Advisory Board and we are eager to read about them.
