Public Relations

Report to the 2019 AGM

Respectfully submitted by Vel McAdam, Chair (The Pas)

Members: Bill Cann (Winnipeg), Guy Hansen (Winnipeg), Ken Malcom (Dauphin), John Sushelnitsky (Portage la Prairie)

The Public Relations Committee met several times this year with the focal point of our agendas being the update of our "Join Us" brochure.  A special thank you to committee member, Bill Cann, for all his work on the computer layout he did for the committee when all of our changes had been completed.  Thanks to all of his efforts, the pamphlet has gone to print and will be ready for AGM.

We addressed the issue of promotional items for AGM and were consulted with regards to a flag stand for our flag.  The topic of "branding" and the Dooley Report were discussed.  

The idea of generating a "media list" was discussed and we are in the process of looking to other organizations that may already have such a list which they might share with us.  

Ideas were discussed as to how to increase membership and how to promote interest in "Board" and "Committee" representation from among that membership.  A joint meeting between Public Relations and Political Advocacy, with Peggy Prendergast also in attendance was held to discuss a broader array of topics of interest to all.  

Finally, our committee will be responsible for assisting with the Hospitality Room at the AGM - looking forward to seeing everyone there.


Retirement is a time of transitions. Throughout your career you belonged to the Manitoba Teachers’ Society (MTS), but upon retirement you are no longer a member. The Retired Teachers’ Association of Manitoba (RTAM) exists to serve retired teachers. We invite you to join the growing number of RTAM members and enjoy the benefits of belonging.
