CIPR launches #CIPRCHAT

#CIPRCHAT, an initiative first proposed and debated during the recent CIPR election, has been launched as a forum for public relations professionals to participate in a monthly hour-long debate with senior CIPR members and volunteers on hot-topics facing the PR industry.

The first #CIPRCHAT will take place on Wednesday 17 July at 4pm and will discuss the future of lobbying, led by CIPR Public Affairs. Visit www.cipr.co.uk/cipr-chat to participate.

Questions will be proposed by @CIPR_UK using #CIPRCHAT and put to a panel of CIPR members to offer their opinion and debate the issue with the other participants. Questions can be submitted in advance to social@cipr.co.uk.

The recent election highlighted the opportunity for the CIPR to engage with members via social forms of media around issues facing the profession. I’m keen to explore different means of engagement with members and the broader profession. It’s great that our first discussion around lobbying is being led by members of the CIPR Public Affairs Group who have been active on this issue.
