Influence magazine is produced quarterly and is available exclusively to CIPR members. Launched in 2016, Influence quickly made its mark as the industry's most authoritative communications journal.

Influence has won multiple awards for its playful approach and compelling thought leadership content. In 2018, the magazine scooped all major ‘membership publication of the year’ awards, culminating with ‘best membership magazine in the world’ at the International Content Marketing Awards. In 2019, Influence won the MemCom award for 'best magazine for a professional association' for three consecutive years.

Some of the industry's brightest minds sit on the Influence editorial board, continually reviewing the magazine's content and performance.
