Public Relations: New Yearís Resolutions for your Grange

By Terri Fassio, Public Relations Co-Director

  JANUARY 5, 2014 --

As we ring in the new year, there’s no better time to take a few minutes and reflect on the last year for your Grange, and to make a few resolutions for 2014.

•  Resolve to … get the word out about my Grange.  

It only takes a moment to send out a press release, post on Facebook and Twitter, hang a poster or two, or pick up the good old-fashioned telephone.  Make the effort and reap the benefits!

•  Resolve to … take photos and be more visual.

As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.  Incorporating photos (and even video) into your Grange’s marketing efforts can increase the public’s interest (and the interest of your existing members too!) 

•  Resolve to … communicate with your membership more frequently.

Staying in touch with your membership keeps everyone in the loop with the activities and projects of your Grange. Good communications creates enthusiasm. 

•  Resolve to … think outside the box.

Look for new ways to engage your members and the public.  Find something that inspires you and then find a way to incorporate that into your Grange.  Don’t be afraid to try something new.

•  Resolve to … be a better Grange!

Have fun as a group.  Laugh more.  Give to the community.  Be curious.  Volunteer and lend a hand.  Focus.  Choose a favorite project to participate in.  Exercise your mind.  Be tolerant.  Discover something new.  Say thank you.  But most importantly, share your love of the organization with others.
