CIPR forms new Editorial Board

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has today confirmed the membership of a new Editorial Board.

This follows news this week that the CIPR has not renewed its partnership with PRWeek.

The Board will be Chaired by Rob Brown FCIPR, CIPR President-Elect 2015 and Managing Director of Rule 5.

Rob Brown FCIPR, CIPR President Elect 2015, Managing Partner of Rule 5
We have an opportunity to gather views and assess how the CIPR can provide members with the right media to meet their professional needs. The primary focus for an organisation like the CIPR in a sector where there is a long term drive towards higher professional standards and a short term need to continually develop individual skills, should be to share knowledge and inform, as well as to entertain. I am very pleased we have been able to assemble CIPR members closely involved with our work in areas including public affairs, marketing, internal communications, financial public relations and diversity in the workforce. I know others will join us as our work gets underway. We will move quickly to develop new routes to engage members. There will be further news of our plans before the year end.
