ATTENTION PUBLIC RELATIONS AGENCies
Every company joining as a CP must fill out an application. When applying for different companies, a unique username and e-mail address is required for each company, even if the same person is the PR rep for each company. If necessary, consider setting up e-mail accounts through Gmail or Yahoo before applying.
Example: John Smith is the rep for four companies. He uses different usernames, such as JSCompanyName, using his initials with each company name. Then he sets up e-mail accounts the same way JSCompanyName@gmail.com. He then sets the e-mails for each (free) account to forward all e-mails to his primary e-mail address.
Applicants agree to abide by and support POMA's Mission statement, irrevocable charter & bylaws
