Public Relations: A Guide for Volunteers.
Harrison, S. L.
Ground rules need to be recognized in order to make the contributions of public relations volunteers successful. Before beginning, public relations volunteers needs to know what the organization expects of them. Volunteers also should: identify the resources available to them; define and identify the tasks that apply to the specific situation; establish and attain goals; define an evaluation for success; prepare a crisis plan; make sure they know what is happening within the office; establish and maintain credibility; and know who the media people are. Volunteers in a non-profit organization may work alone and should investigate local colleges for an intern who might be willing and eager to learn on-the-job skills for college credits. Volunteers may feel overworked and unrewarded, but their contributions are invaluable and essential to every group that welcomes their contribution. (RS)
