A member base spanning borders and cultures
We aim to act both as a supportive membership organisation and a centre of excellence to public relations practitioners around the globe.
The group brings together many different sectors within the international communications industry to network, discuss, and learn from each other about the issues facing communicators working internationally today. We do this by holding face-to-face events as well as virtual meetings so that our colleagues overseas can take part.
We offer guidance, training, development and advice to PR colleagues around the world.
If you are already a member we hope you will find the site interesting and informative. If you are not, please consider joining this dynamic group!
We know that some of you operate under challenging and often difficult circumstances in your local market and it can sometimes seem that there is nowhere to turn to obtain the help or support you require. To those of you in this situation we say 'you are not alone' and encourage you to join us.
