4. PUBLICITY CAMPAIGN (SINGAPORE)

The Rotary People of Action brand campaign in Singapore has started on 27 Aug 2018 with an article in the leading English newspaper, Straits Times on 27/8/18. This was followed by another article in the flagship Chinese newspaper, Lianhe Zaobao, on 28 Aug 2018. The campaign is a significant event for the Rotarians in Singapore as it marks the start of a campaign to create greater public awareness of Rotary and help boost the image of the Rotary movement in Singapore. Club-specific ones featuring our members’ faces will come out in the next phase.  With the kind arrangement of AG Elsie Chua, clubs can now strengthen their image through the publication of their projects and other events by working with the media at a special rate. Thanks to Elsie!
