 The Nigerian Institute of Public Relations, NIPR, Kaduna State Chapter has conducted an orientation and documentation seminar for new members on Friday, 19 February 2021 in Kaduna .

The exercise was organized as another step of an Induction process of admission of new members which will provide opportunities to the new members to interact and socialize with one another  and also to allow them  understand their basic obligations, responsibilities, right and privileges as professional members of the Institute. 

The Kaduna  Chapter Chairman, Alhaji Bashir Chedi , while welcoming new members charged them to 

maintain higher professional ethics, practice and standard. 

He enjoyed them to serve as examples for the achievement of excellence in their respective organizations. 

Malam Chedi further urged the new members to see their memberships as an opportunity to add value to their work place as the institute will continue to provide avenues for their continued training and retraining on various aspects of Public Relations rather than to collect their certificate as a meal ticket and fail to actively participate in the institute professional capacity development activities.

Alhaji Bashir also warned that it would soon delist non active members as the state Chapter of the NIPR is working with the national body to that effect.

He, therefore called on all members to be active and to be alive with the responsibilities as the current leadership at both the state and national levels are more committed to ensure members receive tangible benefits and value for being members of the institute, through continuous training programs and cross vitalization of ideas and experience from tested hands in the industry both locally and internationally. 

Most of the inductees are drawn from  Air force Institute of Technology (AFIT) Kaduna.

In a related development, the Chapter , Chairman also revealed that NIPR has granted the Kaduna State Chapter to set up an accredited Study Centre .

Chedi said:

“This is a big opportunity for many Public Relations and information officers in the north who are practicing without the necessary qualifications and approval of the institute and also for the teeming northern youths  who wish to become professional in the area of Public Relations.

“I call on them  to use this golden opportunity of the Study Centre in Kaduna and acquire NIPR Professional Certificate and Diploma which will qualify them for NIPR Membership and a direct admission to the University , he added .
