Our focus is on promoting the strategic business value of communications, supporting members with continued professional development, including Chartership, and encouraging the next generation of talent into our industry. 

Our aim is to support members in the region and to promote the value of professional PR to organisations and businesses, and we are committed to delivering opportunities so our members can earn CPD points throughout the year by attending our events
