District 7780 has formed a new Committee focusing on Public Image.  And the Committee is Launching a newsletter PUBLIC IMAGE UPDATE, Rotary’s District 7780 Public Image Committee way of reaching out to all clubs with a plan to help spread the Rotary mes­sage. The Rotary message is shaped by the actions of our clubs and each of its members, as well as by its involvement in the community, its presence on the web, social media, and the publications it produces.

This committee supports Rotary’s strategic goal of en­hancing the public’s image of Rotary and its awareness of our service and activities. It will help clubs to in­crease membership, expand community partnerships, improve fundraising opportunities, and promote involve­ment in club projects.
Committee goals are:
  • To provide clubs with a plan for public image outreach and campaigns.
  • To encourage clubs to run their websites and social media sites.
  • To help clubs man­age their other communications with content and ideas.
