CIPR members in the North East have elected a number of the region’s professionals from a cross-section of industries after an election.
The move sees the voluntary committee expand to include 14 members, who are planning a number of professional events on a variety of topics over the next 12 months.
Seven local CIPR members officially put themselves forward for the few spots available, which meant a full election was required for all non-executive positions. Four new members were then confirmed.
Gill Stephenson-Russell, Head of National Communications and Customer Services at the Marine Management Organisation, was joined by Laura Ball, Communications Assistant at the Diocese of Newcastle, Tudor Tamas, Head of Social Media and PR for Factory51Media, and Becky Beaumont, Media and PR Executive at the NewcastleGateshead Initiative.
Following the AGM, the new committee met and voted to co-opt another new member, Laura Richards, completing the line-up and bringing the North East committee to maximum capacity.
