Public Relations Annual
The Public Relations responsibilities and duties have changed over the last few years due to revisions to the reporting structure of MDMLG and due to electronic methods of disseminating information.
Responsibility for the Membership Directory is now taken care of by the Communications Committee and the Directory has moved online.
The MDMLG job bank has taken on a new form as well. Many job openings are now posted directly to the MDMLG Listerv by the MDMLG members having open positions and the Webmaster is able to post them directly to Web site without the interference of a third person. This seems to be an effective and timely way to operate this function. All other positions brought to the attention of the Public Relations were sent to the Webmaster to post.
Creation of a new MDMLG brochure to be used in welcome packets and mailings was begun. This task was not completed and this should be part of the focus for next year.
Due to meeting conflicts and other commitments the Public Relations board member was unable to be as active as needed for this position and apologizes to the organization for those tasks that remain undone.
