AMEC to launch new measurement framework at June Summit

The International Association for Measurement and Evaluation of Communication (AMEC) will launch a new integrated communications measurement framework at the AMEC International Summit on Measurement in London on 15 and 16 June.

The new easy-to-use model will offer CIPR members and the wider public relations community an effective way of putting the Barcelona Principles into practice. 

According to the CIPR's State of the Profession 2015/16 research, 55% of practitioners spend most or some of their time on measurement and evaluation, but only 5% ranked the practices amongst their strongest competencies.

Rob Brown FCIPR, CIPR President, Managing Partner of Rule 5
Our research evidences that measurement and evaluation is still an area of weakness for public relations practitioners. 

I urge our members to help raise standards of practice by attending the Summit and familiarising themselves with AMEC's new framework.
 
Rob Brown FCIPR, CIPR President, Managing Partner of Rule 5
Richard Bagnall MCIPR, CEO of PRIME Research UK, Chairman of AMEC’s social media measurement committee
The new framework has been developed to help PR professionals plan and measure the success of their integrated communications programmes.

We have taken an interactive and common-sense approach to help PR and communications professionals in a complex multi-channel world.
 
Richard Bagnall MCIPR, CEO of PRIME Research UK, Chairman of AMEC’s social media measurement committee
Barry Leggetter FCIPR, Executive Director of AMEC
The CIPR has always played a key role in education on measurement and was hugely supportive of our Barcelona Principles initiative. I hope CIPR members will see the practical benefit of our new framework. 

 
Barry Leggetter FCIPR, Executive Director of AMEC

Over sixty leading global communications speakers from major brands and organisations are confirmed for the AMEC Summit in June.
