Speaker - Dan Dubreuil
With a background in Market Research, Dan is a member of the Rotary Burlington North Club, and is the current Director of Public Relations for our District 7080.

In his capacity as Director, Dan introduced the PR Rock-Star Incentive Program. Up to 10 clubs can each qualify for a $400 credit to "Boost" their posts or advertise on Facebook.

In order to become a PR Rock Star, clubs must meet the 3 criteria:
1. Increase their count of Facebook Followers by 10%, or 50 people, whichever is larger.
2. Record and post 10 videos on Facebook, each video must be at least 20 seconds, and tell the story of one member on why they enjoy being a Rotarian.
3. Create and submit at least one story about their club for the District bulletin, focusing on a unique club initiative that benefits the community.

Once completed (by January 31, 2021), clubs must notify Dan directly. For more information, go to Rotary7080.org, click on Public Relations under Committees, and PR Rock-Star Program on the left hand side.

Thank you for joining us Dan, we will do our best to participate in your program.
