CIPR welcomes the first three new Chartered Practitioners of the decade

The CIPR has welcomed three more Chartered PR Professionals (Chart.PR) after the first Chartership Assessment day of the year took place in London this Thursday. The new Chartered Practitioners are:

  • Laura Boxall Chart.PR MCIPR 
  • Lucy Cox Chart.PR MCIPR 
  • Chris Vinson Chart.PR MCIPR

Candidates were assessed on their knowledge of ethics, strategy and leadership and now join the growing 326-strong community of Chartered professionals. The assessment was led by Emily Cheyne Chart.PR, MCIPR.

CIPR President, Jenni Field Chart.PR, FCIPR
Congratulations to Laura, Lucy and Chris on passing our Chartership Assessment. Through this assessment you have proved yourselves as ethically competent, strategically sound with the judgement to positively influence organisations at the highest level. My mission as President is to continue our focus on our professional conduct. I want to make sure our members have everything they need to demonstrate high levels of skill, knowledge, competence as well as high standards of practise and professionalism. There is no better way to evidence this than by getting chartered.

I'm delighted to see our Chartered Practitioner community continuing to grow and it was wonderful to hear such interest from members I met in Cardiff this week where there is an assessment day planned for Friday 20 March.
