Opportunities are always popping up to get involved as a CIPR volunteer and you'll find details of our latest roles on this page.
Standing for Board, Council and President
Elections for President and seats on our Board and Council take place once each year. There is a formal call for nominations, usually in September, and candidates have to be participating in CIPR CPD and able to meet other eligibility criteria to stand.
CIPR Groups represent the views and needs of members across the UK, overseas and in wide ranging industry sectors and disciplines. Many groups appoint their committees at their AGM's in September and October so it's worth getting in touch with our Groups a few months in advance if you're keen to serve on a committee.
