What is Public Relations?

The work of the Public Relations Committee is to help build the capacity of Rotary, Rotaract, and Interact Clubs to get the word out about what they do in their own back yard and around the world.  This helps clubs attract new members. 

Why should you work on your club’s Public Relations Committee?  In short, to help get the word out in your community about what Rotary is, the projects you do in your community and around the world, the leadership skills that you help teach to youth through RYLA/Young RYLA and academic scholarships.  Why?  Because when your community members understand what your Rotary club and its members do, they just might want to join your Rotary team.

So, you are probably thinking:  Where do I begin?  What’s it all about?  I don’t know how to do any of this.  Therefore, this site will lay out the process, describe how to do the various steps, and will give you templates and examples of things like press releases, media lists, and fliers to help make your job easier.  The Public Relations Committee is also planning training opportunities as well as technical assistance.  Stay tuned for these schedules!
