Jen APR+MTripepi Smith Principal Jennifer Nentwig officially renewed her Accreditation in Public Relations and Military Communication (APR+M), affirming her commitment to delivering the best public affairs practices for Tripepi Smith clients.

APR+M is a joint effort between the Universal Accreditation Board, Department of Defense and the Public Relations Society of America that aims to build on the renowned Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) by incorporating public affairs activities in joint military operations. 

In addition to her work at Tripepi Smith, Jennifer is a Public Affairs Officer in the U.S. Air Force Reserves and has served since 2007.

“With my background in both the U.S. Air Force and civil communications, the integrated APR+M allows me to sharpen my expertise in the public affairs space and connect with others who have similar experiences. Maintaining this credential ensures that I am well equipped to lead communication programs and strategies across both of my careers,” said Jennifer. “The leadership at Tripepi Smith has always demonstrated their support for my military service, and I am thankful they have created a space for me to fulfill my military service and built a career at the firm.”

As part of the renewal process, Jennifer achieved continuing education requirements in the categories of professionalism, ethics, professional development and military public affairs. Renewal is required every three years after the initial accreditation process, which involves a rigorous exam and a panel presentation. 

“Jennifer’s commitment to a standard of excellence in public affairs makes her a great leader and mentor for both the Tripepi Smith team and the clients we serve,” said Co-Founder and President Ryder Todd Smith. “Professional development is a top value at our firm, and we are proud of Jennifer for flexing her knowledge and skills with this renewal. We thank her for her service to America and are grateful to have her on our team.”
