The Chaiman's Desk - Communication Revisited

Recently we reviewed our communication expenses to find effective ways to educate our members and consumers. It all comes down to where to spend the $$$$s. From being a business owner, I can tell you this is constant evaluation and making changes. For the IARFC, some focuses will be reduced, others will be increased. 

How we see improvement for 2019…
•    The Register will be published 4 times a year. Reducing the number of issues allows us to expand in other areas. It will still represent enlightened articles written by members plus Association updates.

•    An E-newsletter will be initiated. This communication contains more concise news about financial trends and stories happening now — delivered with consistency and convenience. 

•    Public Service Announcements 
are planned for distribution to radio 
stations to acquaint consumers with the benefits of engaging our RFAs, RFCs and MRFCs. This I feel is mandatory to make us visible to the public.

How we are staying the same…
•    Journal of Personal Finance 
continues with researched articles 
from academic editors.
•    Media releases blasted out every month.
•    Posts to LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter updated regularly.
•    Blogs written on recent events.
•    Annual Conference presented as a strong networking event. Look for registration information and plan to attend in Nashville next year.
