From quickly adapting to home-working and supporting members at a time of crisis, to delivering a seamless virtual conference in November and making learning resources available to professionals around the world, I am delighted that the work of our Institute has been recognised in the National Association Awards.

To all volunteers and staff involved at the CIPR, you played an integral role in supporting the PR profession over the last year, you demonstrated your passion and limitless commitment. As we face ongoing challenges posed by the pandemic, I look forward to seeing how we adapt to support the profession further. Congratulations to all finalists and winners involved at the 2021 National Association Awards.
