CIPR Election results

I am thrilled to have been re-elected to CIPR Council, for a two-year term, starting January 2017.

Having campaigned for two weeks, mostly via my own networks and social media, I was thrilled to learn this afternoon that I had been re-elected for another term on CIPR Council.

Here’s my campaign post as a reminder. The Open List was a particularly difficult list to stand in because there were only eight seats and there were 17 candidates! Congratulations to everyone who has been elected.

Members also voted for President-Elect. Congratulations to Sarah Hall for being elected. Sarah is Editor of #FuturePRoof and runs Sarah Hall Consulting.

The line-up of candidates was strong this year, which is a very positive sign that there are willing and experienced volunteers. I hope this trend continues in future years. I also hope that candidates who weren’t elected aren’t put off. There are many ways of getting involved in the CIPR without being elected to Council.

Here’s the official results PDF.
