Rotary Basics 2015-2016
Presentation at the 2014-15 District Assembly
Public relations efforts are vital to Rotary’s continued growth and service. Creating a positive image for Rotary is the responsibility of every Rotarian, both locally and globally. Rotary founder Paul Harris said it himself: “In the promotion of understanding, it is important to reach large numbers, non-Rotarians as well as Rotarians, and you cannot reach large numbers privately.” The Public Relations team continues to improve our efforts and outreach to ensure that you get the resources you need in a format easy to understand.
