Rotary public image coordinators

RPICs assembled in Chicago earlier this year for training
Rotary public image coordinators (RPICs) provide guidance and resources on effective public relations to enhance Rotary's public image. The 49 RPICs work in partnership with their zone's RI director, regional Rotary Foundation coordinator, Rotary coordinator, and district governors.
RPICs have professional expertise in public relations, journalism, or communications. They support the RI Strategic Plan by conveying the methods of effective public relations to district leaders.
RPICs
  • Increase recognition of Rotary's humanitarian efforts among Rotarians and the general public
  • Communicate Rotary's success stories to the media, local government officials, civic leaders, and communities
  • Provide counsel on public relations grants
  • Assist and offer training at governors-elect training seminars and zone and district seminars
  • Foster a regionally appropriate approach to Rotary's public image efforts
