Media relations: Acoustics body names first PRO

The Institute of Acoustics (IoA), the UK professional body for those working in acoustics, noise and vibration, has hired its first PRO to tap into media interest in noise pollution.

Judy Edrich joins as publicity and information manager from regeneration body Groundwork Hertfordshire where she was communications officer.

CEO Roy Bratby said noise from traffic, pubs, music and transport affects everyone. He added that issues such as Heathrow's Terminal Five provide occasions when the media should turn to the IoA for advice from its 2,500 members.

Edrich will also promote IoA's role as a provider of professional qualifications, education programmes and conferences.
