We have seen the power and impact that sport can have all over the world and across communities. The good it can do and the ability to touch millions of people means those within and around sport have a responsibility to ensure their work is done to the highest professional and ethical standards. Public relations has a huge part to play and our hope is that this new Network will bring together interested and passionate individuals who can help us share experiences, practices, and learnings to the CIPR community through events and networking.

We're looking forward to being part of the CIPR community and adding to the fantastic offer that comes with membership.
