The Nashville Chapter of the Religion Communicators Council (RCC) has just set an August business meeting to form a nominating committee for chapter officers.
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 Nashville Chapter has just announced that it will hold an August business meeting, in part to select a nominating committee which will be charged with creating a slate of officers for a 2018-2019 term.
Since 2014, the Nashville executive committee has consisted of Rev. Brian Fesler, Pastor of the Church of Scientology, as President; Drew Pope, former Public Affairs Director for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as Vice President for Programs; Royya James, Conference Relations Coordinator of United Methodist Communications as Treasurer; Julie Brinker, Director of Community Affairs for the Church of Scientology as Communications Coordinator; and Aisha Lbhalla of the Tennessee Muslim Women’s Council as Membership Officer.
Rev. Fesler says, “Our chapter has thrived with this diverse group of religious leaders, but now it is time to see who else in the Nashville community would like an opportunity to lead this excellent group of religious communicators. Nashville is filled with potential, especially in the ever-growing diversity of the city which includes the religious sector, and I think there are many who would like to take the helm of this organization to help it grow into the future.”
Since 2015, the Nashville chapter has met every other month with a series called “Building Bridges Over Bagels,” during which members would discuss current issues of interest to people of faith and what they could do to overcome division together. This series proved very popular with members, and is something Fesler says he would like to see the next administration build on and carry forward.
