The Public Relations Committee

A Statutory Required Committee

The Public Relations Committee is charged with telling the stories of Elks’ activities and programs, positioning our Lodge to gain favorable media coverage, building an awareness of the B.P.O. Elks, and even creating a greater interest in joining our organization.

The Public Relations Committee is appointed by the Exalted Ruler. The committee is required by Grand Lodge statute and should have no fewer than 3 members on the committee.
