  2. Recruit your “dream team”
  3. Adopt policies (but be flexible)
  4. Don’t reinvent the wheel
  5. Always strive to get better

More details including electronic versions of the presentation notes and a copy of First Presbyterian Church’s Communication Policy and their FPC Communications Projects Check List can be found on the RCCDFW Facebook page.

July’s program will feature crisis communications preparation. Katherine Kerr, APR, president of Polaris Non-Profit Solutions and a member of RCC’s national Board, will present “Not ‘If’ but ‘When’” to help attendees prepare their organization to correctly handle communications in a crisis situation. July 21 is the date.

As a timely follow-up to the crisis topic, in August, Mark Wingfield, Associate Pastor with responsibilities for communications and outreach at Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas, will talk about the crisis situation Wilshire had to deal with when the church decided to support one of their members who was the fiancé of Thomas Duncan, the man who died from the Ebola virus. August 18 is the date.
