The Public Relations Committee

A Statutory Required Committee

The Public Relations Committee is charged with telling the stories of Elksā€™ 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.

TheĀ Public RelationsĀ 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.
