The Nashville Chapter of the Religion Communicators Council (RCC) meets monthly. The group recently met to nominate incoming officers for the 2014-2015 year term.
The Religion Communicators Council (RCC), founded in 1929, is an interfaith association of religion communicators at work in print and electronic communication, marketing and public relations. Members of the RCC come from many different religions and backgrounds including Christianity, Judaism, Baha’i Faith, Islam and Scientology, among others.
The group met recently to elect its incoming officers for the 2014-2016 year. The nominations included Rev. Brian Fesler, Pastor of the Church of Scientology, to continue in his role as President; Drew Pope, Public Affairs Director for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to be the Vice President for Programs; Royya James, Conference Relations Coordinator of United Methodist Communications to be Treasurer; Julie Brinker, Director of Community Affairs for the Church of Scientology to continue in her role as Communications Coordinator; Aisha Lbhalla of the Tennessee Muslim Women’s Council and Abbie Wolf of the Jewish Federation of Nashville to be Co-Membership Officers.
President Fesler says, “I’m very excited about this slate of officers. I’ve been fortunate to have good people during my first two terms and very much looking forward to the third with this bright and productive team.”
The Nashville chapter meets on the third Tuesday of each month for lunchtime presentaitons designed to improve attendees’ skills in some aspect of religious communications. “We always try to reach outside the box and learn more,” says Fesler.
