Our 'new' Rotary branding has been available for several years now and it looks spectacular when used with projects like this mobile health clinic sent from New Zealand to Rarotonga. To achieve the greatest impact, we all need to be using the updated branding for our projects, flyers, banners, business cards, websites, Facebook pages and so on. Check out the Rotary Brand Center.      

Public Relations and Communications Committee

Enhancing public image and awareness is one of the goals in the Rotary International Strategic Plan.
This Committee promotes Rotary to external audiences and fosters understanding, appreciation, and support for the organisation’s programmes. It also helps Rotarians understand that effective external publicity, favourable public relations, and a positive image build support for the organization, inspire potential donors, and attract possible candidates for membership.

What This Committee Does & How We Can Help You

  • Promotes Rotary to external audiences, such as the media, community leaders, potential partner organizations, program beneficiaries, and the general public.
  • Share district and club stories via social media.
  • Shares Rotary public relations materials with clubs and encourage them to make public relations outreach a priority, using both traditional and digital media.
  • Provides training and answers inquiries from Rotarians and external parties about D9940 public relations e.g. materials and resources that are available.
  • Encourages Rotarians to use My Rotary and Rotary Club Central.
  • Speaks to individual clubs about the importance of club public relations, including developing and updating websites and social media presences.
  • Ensures the District website is maintained through the webmaster and content editor.
  • Maintains connections with the Zone ROZcom committee and puts D9940’s point of view.
  • If Clubs have no web presence, helps them create and promote themselves e.g. through their page on the Clubrunner multi-district website.
