Changes to Fellowship nominations

The CIPR has amended regulations governing the nomination of Fellows. The changes, approved by the Institute's Board, are designed to simplify the nominations process. 

The criteria for Fellows has been updated and eligible members can now self nominate. Nominations must include signatures of support from five CIPR members. 

As part of the changes, the Fellowship Nominations Committee has been dissolved and nominations will now fall under the jurisdiction of the Professional Development and Membership Committee (PDMC).

The updated regulations, along with the new nomination form, are available on the CIPR website.

Notes to editors

About Fellowship
CIPR Fellowship is awarded for outstanding contribution to the CIPR and the public relations industry. Our Fellows play an important role at the Institute: we look to our Fellows to help promote professionalism, demonstrate best practice and raise awareness of the benefits of CIPR membership.

Our Fellows hold invaluable experience of PR, communications and business practice, and are able to provide a unique insight into the profession and the issues facing communicators around the UK. Fellows help the Institute develop best practice standards and policies, sharing their experience and knowledge by contributing to the Institute's working groups, panels and consultations.
