IPRA's latest news and notifications
1 day, 21 hours ago
Over the last few years, IPRA has steadily enlarged its footprint across the globe by concluding several new cooperation agreements with regional or local PR organisations. At the start, the aim is to first establish shared vision, interests and goals and, secondly, seek ways to further those goals. At the centre of this trend is the mission of IPRA and its Code of Conduct. The cooperation agreements allow us to apply positive influence on the way the public relations profession in a given region is conducted. Often one way to exert this influence is to discuss the Code during the talks preceding a cooperation agreement. An obvious benefit for a national PR association’s agreement with IPRA is direct access to IPRA’s Thought Leadership Essays which are distributed to IPRA members.

Midway this month, IPRA endorsed a full-day conference in Baku, Azerbaijan. Billed as the First International Forum on PR Creativity, the conference brought together over 500 participants from the region who came to hear presenters from more than 10 countries worldwide. The topics broke down roughly in two parts: the practice of PR and the practice of education. In-between came some less often debated themes, such as the application of AI and robotics in the communication profession. For an emerging communication market like Azerbaijan, a conference like this is an important step in fostering a dialogue within its political and economic society about the developing role of public relations. IPRA is glad to support such developments and as its President, I took the opportunity to emphasize in my opening remarks for the conference the principles of freedom of information and ethical behaviour which form the raison d’être of our association. The conference in Baku was organised by PRoloq, an education development center, which undertook this early step in anchoring the education of communication more securely in the country.
