Chartered status demonstrates high levels of skill, knowledge and competence as well as high standards of practise and professionalism. In our fast-moving profession there is no better way to evidence this than through chartership which plays such an important part in our mission to advocate the role of public relations and build a resilient and respected profession.

Huge congratulations to Sara C, Sara H, Naomi, Katherine, Ben, Matthew and Bernice for their achievement - I hope your new status gives you the added confidence to prove to colleagues, clients and other professionals that your work is valuable and of the highest strategic and ethical standards.
