Volunteers at the heart of the cipr community

A network of more than 350 volunteers are at the heart of the CIPR community - governing our strategic direction, representing members and informing and leading our work.

Volunteering is a fantastic way to build new skills, meet new people and get involved in work that you may not have the chance to do ordinarily. 

Volunteering also counts towards  CIPR CPD, you can earn 20 CPD points each year for your contribution as a volunteer.

The first volunteer conference  took place in May 2022 at the Queens hotel in Leeds, with over 70 delegates in attendance.   We asked our volunteers to nominate and recognise the amazing work that their peers carry out for the CIPR. 

See the winners of our 2024 Recognition and Reward awards.
