In support of public health guidelines and with the health of our members and community in mind, CPRS Calgary will be holding off on any in-person PD sessions until further notice. As a service to members, we’ve also compiled a list of COVID-19 resources for communicators.

We hope these resources will help you keep up to date and occupied during this difficult time when so many of us are self-isolating. Be safe. Take care of yourself and your loved ones. Your PR community is thinking of you.

Online Professional Development Resources

Just because we aren’t able to get together in person to share experiences and expertise, that doesn’t mean you can’t continue to expand your PR and communications knowledge. In lieu of local, in-person events, we invite any members looking for professional development opportunities to take advantage of the large store of free, on-demand webinars and other resources available in the members learning section of This impressive collection includes handy resources such as a Crisis Communications Checklist; crisis communications case studies; a range of offerings from the CPRS Health Academy; a webinar on Public Relations in the CASL Era; and much, much more.

It’s all included with your annual CPRS membership. If your membership has recently expired, you can simply login and renew online. If it’s been a while since you’ve renewed, you can click the Join button and complete the process that way.

COVID-19 Resource Links

As we navigate the uncertain waters of COVID -19, CPRS will be compiling a growing repository of information and resources to assist our members with their communications efforts.
