Publicity support for all clubs

The clubs rostered to use the special callsign VK100WIA in June have received a comprehensive package of material to help them promote amateur radio, their club and the WIA Centenary.

The material is ideal for any club that wants to promote an event or activity and gain positive media publicity for amateur radio. While clubs on the VK100WIA roster will automatically receive this material eight weeks prior to their three-day rostered slot, any other WIA affiliated club can request a copy from the WIA National Office.

In a covering letter the WIA President Michael Owen VK3KI explains that the resources being provided include media liaison advice, a template media release, background sheets and guides. Clubs using this package will easily be able to create a 'Media Kit' to send to their local news media. Michael VK3KI said a number of clubs had asked him and other WIA directors at hamfests and meetings for this kind of support. We now look forward to seeing the results of club media campaigns.
