Media Relations is about the different resources your Auxiliary uses to get the word out to the community about who we are and what we do. It also involves how we communicate with each other. All of this involves using different types of Social media, newspapers, radio, and television. It also means sending out newsletters to your Auxiliary and District members, either by email or snail mail. The Auxiliary Historian is responsible for keeping a record, using photographs, flyers, event programs and other memorabilia , of the President’s and Auxiliaries activities from installation to installation. 

The National website has publicity and media tools available to help you promote your Auxiliary.
By going to www.vfwauxiliary.org/resources and using the tools provided under the Historian/Media program you will find ideas in communicating to the community about how we help active military, Veterans and families.
Historians should take an active role in promoting your Auxiliary through Facebook, Auxiliary
newsletter or a joint newsletter with Post. National wants Historians to use digital media in
promoting Auxiliary.
