Select the membership grade that is appropriate for your level of PR experience and/or qualification. You can only join at the correct grade so please read through the entry criteria for each grade carefully.

Send us your application form (by post, fax or email) along with payment details for your fees (subscription fee and admission fee).

We'll process your application – this may take up to 2 weeks – and email you to confirm when your membership is activated. You'll receive your membership pack, card and certificate a few weeks after that.

Application forms

More than two of you?

If at least 3 people from the same organisation join at the same time, we will waive the £55 admission fee (saving you at least £165). Membership applications should be sent to the CIPR together and each application should carry the promotion code 'CIPR3'. Membership is still awarded on an individual basis. This offer applies to new members only.

10 or more?

If you are joining or renewing at least 10 members from the same organisation, please contact to discuss our bespoke membership scheme.

Do you work in public affairs or lobbying?

The UK Public Affairs Council (UKPAC) maintains a register of those engaged in lobbying. If you meet UKPAC's definition of a lobbyist, it is a condition of CIPR membership that you register your details via the UKPAC website.
