North East PR Consultant Sarah Hall has been elected 2017 President-Elect of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR). The role involves a three-year tenure, during which Sarah will become the Institute’s President in 2018.
The CIPR has the power to grant Chartered Public Relations Practitioner status to individuals who meet the required standard of professional distinction. Sarah was the first practitioner in the region to achieve this.
The president’s duties include acting as chairperson for the CIPR and as the representative of the public relations industry within the UK. Sarah will continue throughout as Managing Director of Sarah Hall Consulting Ltd.
Sarah’s success in the CIPR elections follows closely behind the publication of her second book, #FuturePRoof: Edition Two, aimed at demonstrating the value of public relations as a strategic management discipline.
Sarah said: “To have been elected as 2018 President of the CIPR is a real privilege, especially as my time at the helm will mark seventy years for the Institute. There is a lot to celebrate however, I have pledged to address the gender pay gap in public relations, to build the industry’s reputation and widen the membership offer.”
