Publicity for Weekly Meetings

Work with your Unit Public Affairs Officer to gain a list of local media contacts, or create your own database using the "Media Database" guidance on the WAWG/PA webpageNext, submit all open house, recruitment event, and weekly meeting info to any papers within a logical radius of your Unit! Most newspapers have an online calendar that allows you to create recurring meetings, and you can often set them out for a year or more in advance, too!
