CIPR President, Jenni Field Chart.PR, FCIPR
I have been hugely encouraged to see so many candidates committing to their professionalism this year, especially considering the challenging times we find ourselves in. I am adamant that our mission to increase the demonstrable professionalism within public relations will only benefit us all and will serve to advocate for our work and build our own resilience.

Congratulations to Holly, Nicola J, Harry, Nicola M, Leah, Kenneth, and Vicki on your achievement. As President for 2020 I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all those who got Chartered this year and to thank you for trusting us to deliver this in a new way. I'm delighted this meant we were able to offer the opportunity of chartership to more members, including those based outside of the UK. Each of our new chartered practitioners has demonstrated their ability to operate strategically and have committed to maintaining the highest standards of professional practice. Finally, I strongly encourage all members to consider getting the highest grade of accreditation possible in public relations. Make 2021 the year you get chartered.
