CIPR and Ministry of Defence launch Defence Communicators’ Network

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations and the Ministry of Defence have launched a Defence Communicators’ Network. The aim of the initiative is to bring together communicators working in Defence – civilian, military regulars and reserves – in a place to share best practice, knowledge and experience.

Following a launch event last week attended by Defence staff from across the country, other Government departments, and senior members of the CIPR, the Network intends to hold meetings, events and virtual gatherings embracing communicators from across the Defence community and those who work with them on Defence matters.

More information on future events will be launched on the CIPR website in the New Year.

Stephen Jolly FCIPR, Director of Defence Communications, Ministry of Defence
This new network, framed within the CIPR’s Code of Conduct, is our forum to discuss and debate the issues that matter to us in today’s demanding communications environment.
Stephen Jolly FCIPR, Director of Defence Communications, Ministry of Defence
Sue Wolstenholme FCIPR, CIPR President
I'm delighted that this group has been brought together with the CIPR to address some gaps in their needs and in our understanding of how we might best help them.
Sue Wolstenholme FCIPR, CIPR President

About the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR)Founded in 1948, the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) is the Royal Chartered professional body for public relations practitioners in the UK and overseas. The CIPR is the largest membership organisation for PR practitioners outside of North America. By size of turnover and number of individually registered members, we are the leading representative body for the PR profession and industry in Europe.

The CIPR advances professionalism in public relations by making its members accountable to their employers and the public through a code of conduct and searchable public register, setting standards through training, qualifications, awards and the production of best practice and skills guidance, facilitating Continuing Professional Development (CPD), and awarding Chartered Public Relations Practitioner status (Chart.PR).
