Chartered practitioner status is awarded to CIPR members who can demonstrate an outstanding level of professional practice and knowledge, and a commitment to continuous professional development.

CIPR acting director general Ann Mealor said: ‘Those receiving chartered practitioner status this year are all pioneers, setting the bar for future generations of PR leaders. They've had to successfully complete a rigorous assessment process to emerge as the profession's first chartered PR practitioners and are to be congratulated.'
