Public Relations - The volunteer contacts newspapers, radio stations, television stations and other public media. May include calling media contacts, writing press releases, distributing press releases via fax and/or e-mail, and more. This work helps us to get our message to the general public.

Corporate Relations - The volunteer seeks out companies and organizations with which the Chapter can establish mutually beneficial relationships and acts as a keeper of that relationship. Most of this work can be accomplished from home. This work helps to publicize and fund the   Chapter's activities.

Government Relations - The volunteer works to make elected and appointed government officials aware of the area's lighthouse heritage, and of the government's obligation (often legal) to preserve that heritage. May include the prompting of, and assisting with, legislation regarding historic lighthouses. Most of these duties can be accomplished from home. This work helps to ensure the future of our area's lighthouse heritage.

Fundraising - The volunteer works to secure funding sources for the Chapter's work, including grants, membership drives, fundraising events, special gifts, and more. This also includes thanking donors and responding to their needs. Most of this work can be accomplished from home. This work helps to fund the Chapter's mission and will allow the Chapter to conduct more preservation and education activities.
