Public Relations Licensure: Practitioner and Educator Attitudes.
Kalupa, Frank B.; Sievers, C. Gay
Two surveys were conducted to determine the attitudes of public relations practitioners and educators regarding whether public relations practitioners should be licensed. Questionnaires were mailed to public relations practitioners to obtain data for the first survey, and a second survey was mailed several months later to public relations educators. Data revealed that only 2.9% of the practitioner respondents felt that public relations practitioners should be licensed by the government. In addition, 81% of the educators surveyed disagreed or strongly disagreed with the idea of government licensure of public relations practitioners. Thirty-two references are provided. (DF)
