The leadership of Lagos chapter of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) has announced the commencement of its membership audit aimed at evaluating the chapter’s effectiveness.
The membership audit, which is aimed at transferring data from hardcopy to digital version, will also be linked to the re-certification exercise and Master Class projects.
Speaking at a media briefing organised to herald the exercise, Chairman, Lagos NIPR, Olusegun McMedal, said the audit will enable the secretariat to update its membership record and offer advice on procedure for status upgrade.
“The Executive Team realised that our Members are the Chapter’s greatest asset. Thus, this exercise is one of the cardinal plans of the present administration to nurture and protect membership in line of the vision to run a government of inclusion. The exercise will appreciably reduce paperwork and cost of operation in addition to ensuring prompt notification of meetings, events, subscription renewals & upgrades.
“Updated data of members from the Membership Audit will form rich contents for the Chapter’s website which is currently being developed adding that it would also evolve into ePayment solutions and Online Membership Catalogue”, he stated.
To this end, McMedal enjoined members to visit the institute’s secretariat in Lagos or send email detailing their basic information about them to the association.
