Rotary International District 1170
Home | Communications
Rotarians are 'ordinary people doing extraordinary things' to make the world a better place. The aim of the Marketing, PR and Communications committee is to
- Promote the work of Rotary in the Devon area and beyond
- To enable all clubs to capitalise on their achievements by providing resources and sharing expertise
The MPRC Committee will support Clubs and the District team in their internal and external communication. We aim to do this by being responsive to need. The members of the committee are listed on the District website; do contact them if you need help or advice.
In the past this committee was entitled the “Communications” Committee. With the change in its title to the “Marketing, P.R. and Communications” comes a much broader range of responsibilities. Most important is the recognition of the close link between the effective marketing and P.R. of Rotary with membership recruitment. This committee will be working closely with the District Membership Committee to maximise every opportunity to promote Rotary in our communities.
In today's modern world the use of technology plays a major role in the methods we use to communicate. The successful development of the District website and database has enabled information to be passed to all Clubs and Members at the press of a button. Many Clubs have set up systems to enable those members without access to a computer to be kept informed. All Clubs now have the facility to promote their Club activities through this facility. To facilitate the use of these facilities we will be working with the District Training team to identify the most effective and efficient ways to enhance members knowledge of these tools and their ability to use them.
The District website has links to useful tutorials to help members in their use of the District database and RIBI has produced a number of useful information sheets which can be viewed or downloaded:
• Creating a Club Website
• How to Produce a Club Bulletin
• Effective photography
• Media Crisis Management Procedure
• Social Media Guidance
