Nine candidates #getChartered at latest Chartership Assessment Day

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has welcomed nine new Chartered Public Relations Practitioners (Chart.PR) after they successfully completed the latest Chartership Assessment Day held at CIPR HQ, London, on Monday 21 March.

This follows the development of the new Assessment Day format, which has so far seen a 63% increase in the number of Chart.PR's since the new format was first introduced in November 2015. Further information on Chartership Assessment Days and how to apply can be found online.

The nine new Chartered Public Relations Practitioners are:

  • Alan Anstead Chart.PR MCIPR

  • Claire Foster Chart.PR MCIPR

  • Dee Reid Chart.PR MCIPR

  • Emily Osborne Chart.PR MCIPR

  • Jane Revell Chart.PR MCIPR

  • Dr Jon White Chart.PR FCIPR

  • Laurian Hubbard Chart.PR MCIPR

  • Lisa Jones Chart.PR MCIPR

  • Samantha Livingstone Chart.PR MCIPR

Candidates were rigorously assessed on their skills, knowledge and competencies in ethics, strategy and leadership by a team of expert assessors, led by Paul Noble Found.Chart.PR.

In September 2015, the CIPR amended the regulations governing Chart.PR status to open up the eligibility for CIPR members to #getChartered with the goal of increasing the number of Chartered professionals in public relations from approximately 50 (since its introduction in 2008) to more than 250 over the next 24 months.

Members (MCIPR), Fellows (FCIPR) and Honorary Fellows (Hon FCIPR) of the CIPR are eligible to attend a Chartership Assessment Day if they have completed one of the following:

  • three consecutive (or five non-consecutive) years of CIPR CPD
  • two (or four non-consecutive) years of CIPR CPD and hold a Masters degree or the CIPR Diploma.
