Public Affairs Chair
NAR By-Laws Language: Article 11, Section 10: The Public Affairs Committee shall have as its duties the publication of any and all affairs of the Association in any and all outside communications media that shall assist the Association in the furtherance of its aims and purposes.
1. I will ensure that the NAR’s major national events (at a minimum the National Sport Launch and NARAM) are publicized to national print and television media starting at least 30 days in advance of each event, and will work with these media to answer questions and develop their interest in providing coverage of these events.
2. I will assist the organizers of the NAR’s major national events, if they request it, with developing press releases and other public affairs materials for use with local media in the area of their event.
3. I will develop and maintain sample press releases for NAR sections to use in building media interest in local demonstration launches, sport launches, and contests.
4. I will work with the Membership Committee and (as appropriate) with manufacturers to identify publications or other forms of media to target with information or articles about the NAR and the hobby of sport rocketry, in order to boost membership by broadening the exposure of the NAR and the hobby to members of the public who might be interested.
