Join the world’s largest community of professional motor industry communicators.
The Motor Industry Public Affairs Association (MIPAA) Limited is a dynamic membership organisation helping communicators within the motor industry work more effectively by providing training, workshops, events and opportunities for networking.
With over 400 individual members, MIPAA is the world’s largest network of professional motor industry communicators representing major automotive brands, vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, consultancies and other institutions connected with the sector, in the UK and overseas. Membership of MIPAA is open to anyone working in a communications role in the international motor industry.
There are three types of membership – Full, Corporate and Associate:
Available for individuals who work in a communications role within or on behalf of any company in the international motor industry. Annual subscription: £105.00
Note: Since 2016, full membership has included the opportunity to book places on any MIPAA Business Academy (MBA) educational and professional development courses (including the PR Masterclass and Annual Conference) without additional payment. [See further details below]
Organisations with four or more members (including student associates) benefit from corporate membership, at an easy-to-calculate annual subscription of £100 per member.
Students undertaking a placement in a motor industry PR role may apply for two years’ FREE associate membership. They are eligible to book places at MIPAA Business Academy events without charge (subject to availability of places).
MIPAA members who are no longer working in either public relations / communications or within the motor industry may transfer to associate membership at £60 per year. This allows attendance at MIPAA Business Academy events at a 50% discount over the non-member price. Members wishing to transfer from full to associate membership, should contact General Secretary, Heather Yaxley.
