The IPR local government group is set to introduce a range of new
best practice resources for press officers at all levels in the sector.
The move comes in the wake of findings from formal research conducted by
an external agency into its members’ needs. James Flynn, the spokesman
for the committee which commissioned the survey said the IPR local
government group was planning the introduction of regular e-mail
briefings on issues affecting local government PROs as well as an
on-line forum where professionals could share best practice on issues
such as best value implementation.
