CIPR announces two new Chartered Public Relations Practitioners
Amy Cope MCIPR and Eva Maclaine FCIPR have been announced by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) as the latest ‘Chartered Public Relations Practitioners’.
‘Chartered Public Relations Practitioner’ accreditation, the highest level of professionalism in public relations practice, was awarded to Amy and Eva after completing a rigorous assessment of their leadership, strategy, learning and innovation in communications; a comprehensive original piece of work; and a candidate interview, which together showcased their commitment to continuous learning and development.
Amy Cope is a Senior Communications Manager at the Food Standards Agency, leading on various areas of media relations work within the FSA’s press office. Amy’s original piece of work discussed propriety issues for government press officers.
Eva Maclaine sits on CIPR Council and the Professional Practices Committee, is a Fellow and also chair of CIPR International. She is principal of Maclaine Communications which specialises in strategic PR and reputation management programmes, with particular emphasis on strategy development, international communications and stakeholder engagement. Eva’s original piece of work was submitted on international communications, titled "Don't shout please; I'm not deaf just foreign - Lessons from working internationally.”
Chartered Practitioner status sets the bar for future generations of public relations leaders, and is the highest level of award for the CIPR and the public relations profession. This status delivers parity with other business disciplines, and supports our Royal Charter obligation to promote, for the public benefit, high levels of skill, knowledge, competence, standards of practice and professional conduct.
About the CIPR Chartered Public Relations Practitioner Programme
Chartered Public Relations Practitioner status is the highest professional standard awarded to members of the CIPR who have demonstrated an outstanding level of professional practice, knowledge, and a commitment to continuous learning and development.
This is demonstrated by a Statement of Experience; an original piece of work of between 3,000 and 4,000 words critically reflecting on an issue or subject drawn from the candidate’s own professional experience; and, at interview. Full membership and participation on the CIPR’s Continuous Professional Development scheme is mandatory for those wishing to apply and also to retain the status.
