The CIPR Greater London Group, which celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2013, has over 2,700 members and is the largest single regional or sector group within the Institute.
Since 1983, the CIPR Greater London Group has organised some great networking and social events, ranging from meet-the-media gatherings, to debates with some of the leaders in PR. More recently we have brought together some of the leaders in digital, social and mobile to discuss how these technologies are changing our profession.
Our aim is to organise between 8 and 10 events a year, not just for CIPR members but for London-based communications professionals in general, too. We promote these exclusively via member notifications, as well as through Twitter (@LondonPR) and LinkedIn.
Those who attend our meetings are in-house and agency-side professionals who want to network, chat about the industry or just meet peers in their business.
Our Group committee is made up of volunteers who bring their own great experience and expertise to the group.
As with other CIPR Regional Groups, membership is free, but a reasonable entrance fee is charged for each of our events. Wine and canapés are usually included and non-member guests are always welcome to most events, although we do run 'member-only' events too.
