CIPR President's Q3 2014 report published
The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has today published CIPR President Stephen Waddington's third quarterly report, spotlighting progress towards the 10 pledges that he set out in his candidacy for President of the Institute.
This is my third report as President. I committed to reporting to the CIPR Board, Council, groups and members, in this way at the end of each quarter. My aspiration for the CIPR in 2014 is to refocus the organisation around its vision and core purpose, as set out in our Royal Charter, as well as to shift the organisation towards being better networked and member-led. That vision is very simply to promote professionalism in public relations for practitioners, and in the public interest. We have sought to align the organisation firmly with this vision in 2014 through changes to governance, operational activity, campaigning and thought leadership.
