The first edition of Influence – the CIPR’s new Member Magazine – arrives on members’ doorsteps at the end of January 2016.
The magazine, which is to be sent free and exclusively to CIPR members, will be published quarterly in hard copy and supported by a dedicated web platform with high quality journalism about (and for) the public relations profession.
The name "Influence" creates a positive connotation with the profession and demonstrates a key element of the strategic value added by public relations.
The Editorial Board is very excited by the development of Influence and we look forward to how this new, exciting magazine brand can deliver high-quality journalism and content which is dedicated to helping professionals understand and meet the challenges of 21st century PR.
A key aim of Influence is to engage with members of the CIPR members to better understand their views on public relations.
With that in mind, members are invited to complete a short survey answering three short questions that will inform some of the magazine's content in the first edition.
You can find out more about Influence, and view profiles of the CIPR Editorial Board members, who unanaminously voted for the name of the new magazine, via the CIPR website.
