CIPR President, Jenni Field Chart.PR, FCIPR
Congratulations to Alison, Carolyn, Dan and Riki on getting Chartered and becoming the first to do so digitally. My focus as President has always been on our professional and ethical conduct, and there is no better way for someone working in public relations to evidence this than through our rigorous assessment process.

I am thrilled that we can continue to offer the chance for our members to get chartered at this time and in this way. By showing flexibility and adapting our services, it allows us to offer the opportunity to many more members across the country and internationally. There has never been a more important time for our profession to demonstrate our skill, knowledge, competence and professional judgement, and I hope many more members look to becoming chartered over the coming months. 
CIPR President, Jenni Field Chart.PR, FCIPR

Further online sessions will be available in due course. For more information about becoming chartered and to view our Chartered Handbook visit our website.
