The Channel Islands group of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has elected a new committee for 2013.
Steve Falla, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute, will serve a third and final term as chair; Adam Riddell is vice chair, Tom Bradshaw is treasurer and Gemma Long stays as secretary for a second year.
The seven other committee members are Lisa Gutcher, Guy Le Maistre, Leonie Herve, Emma Anderson, Brooke de Laune and Natasha Egre and Sophie Winter.
Mr Falla will continue to represent the CI Group with a seat on the national council and he has been re-appointed to the CIPR membership committee in London.
The CIPR in the Channel Islands aims to promote the highest professional standards within the sector and plans to host a number of events over the course of the year including a Meet the Editor series, talks from leading PR experts on topical communications issues and training courses for members.
Many of these events will also be made available to non-members.
Mr Falla said: “A new CIPR state of the profession benchmarking survey, of almost 1,300 members, indicated that the sector continues to adapt and innovate; taking on skills, responsibility and roles not previously considered in the public relations remit as practitioners aim to influence both communications and business strategy in the boardroom.
“We are all ambassadors for PR and communications in the islands and we can make a significant contribution to the businesses that we represent as employees or consultants.”
He said it was important for PR practitioners to make the most of the opportunities that CIPR membership offers; sharing best practice and continuing to raise the standard of public relations in the Channel Islands.
