The Institute’s 75th anniversary is a perfect opportunity for celebration, reflection and reaffirmation. This issue couldn’t be better timed with features looking at PR’s long history in supporting communities, at today’s challenges of new and emerging technologies, as well as a glimpse into the immediate future of how Westminster’s major political parties will be strategically crafting their PR strategies in time for a general election.
