Women in PR, a women's PR networking organisation and sectoral group of the PRCA (Public Relations Consultants Association), has elected Susan Hardwick and Angela Oakes as joint presidents.

Hardwick and Oakes will be spearheading the organisation's 50th anniversary programme, which is to be a mix of social and informative events for its members. Commenting on their appointment they said, "We are delighted to have the opportunity of taking WPR forward at such an interesting stage in its history. We believe it is a significant platform for senior women working in the field of public relations and is just as relevant today for its members as when the organisation was started, back in 1963. We have a really supportive and talented committee, including two former presidents, and the full backing of the PRCA to ensure that our 50th year is one to be remembered."

Francis Ingham, chief executive of the PRCA, added "The Women in PR group is a fantastic forum that brings together the better half of the PR industry in debate, to share best practices, network and have fun. This is reflected by its strong heritage of securing some of the most accomplished and influential speakers, and its plans to host a wide range of outstanding events over the next twelve months."
