For she's a jolly good Fellow

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has today announced eight new Fellows from its membership, recognising their outstanding work in the public relations profession and service to the Institute. It makes me very proud to announce that I am one of the eight, making me the youngest CIPR Fellow in the North East of England.

CIPR Fellows play an important role in promoting professionalism and best practice in the field of public relations and contribute to the life of the Institute.

CIPR President and Fellow Paul Mylrea said: ‘Being named a Fellow of the CIPR is recognition of professionalism and experience. Most importantly, it is recognition from peers in the industry. I am delighted to welcome the new Fellows of the Chartered Institute and we look forward to harnessing their expertise to promote the industry and its practitioners.’

The CIPR is the professional body for PR practitioners in the UK. With 9,500 members involved in all aspects of PR, it is the largest body of its type in Europe. The CIPR advances the PR profession in the UK by making its members accountable through a code of conduct, developing policies, representing its members and raising standards through education and training.
