New committee for Channel Islands PR professionals

Thursday 12 February 2015

The Channel Islands Group of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR), the body that represents the public relations industry in the UK, has elected a new committee for 2015.

Following its Annual General Meeting in January, Adam Riddell will serve a second term as Chair; Guy Le Maistre has been re-appointed as Treasurer; and Mark Oliphant retains his role as Secretary for a second year.

The seven other committee members, covering both Guernsey and Jersey, are Jim Anderson, Harriet Black, Lisa Downes, Leah Dunford, Natasha Egre, John McCarthy and Nichole Sweetsur.

The CIPR Channel Islands Group aims to promote the highest professional standards within the sector and plans to host a number of events over the course of the year for members and non-members including a ‘Meet the Editor’ series, talks from PR experts on topical communications issues and training courses.

In addition, the Group recently announced it would be partnering with the CIM Channel Islands branch for its 2015 Channel Islands Marketing Awards, specifically to support the ‘Best Use of PR’ Award, whilst current President of the CIPR Sarah Pinch will be a judge for those Awards.

Adam said: “The Group had a really successful year last year, including hosting a talk on social media for business with proved to be the best attended workshop the Group has ever held, and I’m excited to maintain this momentum into 2015. It’s the tenth anniversary of the CIPR receiving its Charter this year, and we’ll be reflecting that through our programme of events, which will cover everything from crisis and internal communications to technology and ethics, so there will be something of interest for all communications professionals across the islands.

“As the PR industry continues to evolve it is important that communications professionals are able to clearly demonstrate the positive contribution it makes to the organisations we represent. The CIPR and its regional Groups play a vital role in achieving this by educating members about the latest research and best practice to enhance their professionalism.”

Further information about the Group can be found through its LinkedIn Group and by following it on Twitter at @CIPR_CI.
