Public Image

Public Image is the way we present ourselves—our Rotary club, our projects and programs, and one another—to the public in our community.

Public Image covers many aspects. To start with, it can be as simple as always wearing the new pin that clearly says “Rotary” on our lapel. It means making a personal contact with somebody in the local media. It means spreading the word of what our club is doing via blogs, and sharing photos and news stories performing community activities in social media

Enhancing public image and awareness is the main goal of the Public Image Committee.
This Committee promotes Rotary to external audiences and fosters understanding, appreciation, and support for the organization’s programs. It also helps Rotarians understand that effective external publicity, favorable public relations, and a positive image build support for the organization, inspire potential donors, and attract possible candidates for membership.
