CIPR welcomes five new Chartered Practitioners

Two agency practitioners, one from the public sector and an in-house public affairs professional were among the five new practitioners who became Chartered PR Professionals (Chart.PR) following an online Chartership Assessment day on Thursday. The new Chartered Practitioners are:

Candidates were assessed on their knowledge of ethics, strategy and leadership and now join the growing community of over 340 Chartered professionals. The assessment was led by led my Emily Cheyne Chart.PR, MCIPR.

It's always a genuine pleasure to congratulate those members who have gone through the process of, and suceeded in, getting Chartered. I'm particularly thrilled with this cohort of practitioners who come from a diverse makeup of disciplines within our profession and highlight that Chartership, and the commitment to professionalism that comes with that title, is for all. With the process now online it is more accessible and easier for anyone to go through that process - whether you work in internal comms, the public sector or public affairs, whether you are in an agency, in-house or freelance, and wherever you are in the world.
