Chair’s report at CIPR international AGM, 19th September 2023 Samantha Seewoosurrun, FCIPR

This has been my second year as Chair and I am proud to say that it has been another year where we have had committee members from across the globe - from UK, Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, North America, the Caribbean, with one member based in New Zealand.

CIPR International is one of the largest sectoral groups of the CIPR and we are always happy to welcome PR professionals from across the globe. We now have 978 members, 174 of whom are new this year, which is a testament to the great work of our committee 410 of them are based overseas proving the international appeal of our offer.

Looking ahead, we still have some great things to come for the rest of this year!

One of the highlights of our calendar each year is the Maggie Nally Memorial lecture. It is one of the most prestigious events held by the Institute and it is held in memory of Margaret Nally, who in 1976 became the first female President of the CIPR.

This year, for the 75th anniversary edition of the lecture, we will be welcoming a truly world class speaker Melissa Fleming, who is the Under Secretary General for Global Communications at the United Nations.

This session will be held online on Wednesday 4 October and really should not be missed!

Later in October, we will also be holding an in-person 75th anniversary event here in Mauritius hosted at the official residence of the British High Commissioner, so if you are in Mauritius or nearby and able to join us, do let us know, we would love to see you!
