Of all the club officer positions, the role of the Vice President Public Relations has been the most mysterious to me. Public Relations can help members to communicate within the club and especially to reach out beyond the club to promote the club to potential new members.
public relations noun
1. the actions of a corporation, store, government, individual, etc., in promoting goodwill between itself and the public, the community, employees, customers, etc.
2. the art, technique, or profession of promoting such goodwill.
