DIARY: PR’s Christian soldiers celebrate their first coming

Hallelujah! Those readers waiting with bated breath for details of the fledgling Association for Christians in Public Relations, wait no more.

Hallelujah! Those readers waiting with bated breath for details of

the fledgling Association for Christians in Public Relations, wait no

more.



Some may remember that the ACPR’s birth was covered in these pages last

year (PR Week, 20 August, 1999). At that time, its prime objective was

yet to be set. Along with its slogan of ’Tidings of joy: peace and

goodwill to all men’ the ACPR’s main objective, the Diary can now

reveal, is prayer.



We can also tell you that a date for the first meeting has been set - 23

June.



Secretary Sally Davis, also founder of Portsmouth-based agency the PR

Department, says that the fledgling society has only signed up 18

members thus far - although they do cover the length and breadth of the

nation, and even extend as far as Versailles, France.



The ACPR might not yet rival the IPR in terms of membership support, or

offer such earthly aid as the IPR’s legal helpline, but for certain PR

practitioners a direct line to the ear of the big fella is probably

better value.
