Define the Marketing Tools
What is the BEST tool for your chapter to use?

Social media, website, etc.

If you see a chapter using a tool especially well, don't hesitate to ask them for advice!

Based on the abilities of your chapter, define the best way to begin.
A press release is an official statement issued to the media giving information on a particular matter.
There is a specific formula to use, but there are free templates on the internet.

Once a press release is written, email it to local media outlets, or upload to a free online press release distributor.
