Friendship Force members and clubs around the world are doing spectacular work all the time! Look here for news, stories and information on upcoming FFI events worldwide.

Members on the Screen and Over the Airwaves

A new training and educational tool for clubs and members has helped spread the good news of Friendship Force in areas around the world! Since January, FFI Public Relations strategist, Andrew Bowen, has been holding monthly free webinars for members across the world. Bringing his four decades of experience to each session, Andrew is a career journalist, former political press secretary, founder and senior counsel with his own international marketing/PR firm, Clearview Communications & Public Relations Inc.

Since beginning these webinars, several clubs around the world have shared some spectacular examples of their successes in local media relations and club publicity!

Most notably:
Members of the Friendship Force of Greater Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA, Lisa and Katie, were interviewed on Good Day PA in early August, expertly promoting not only their club and upcoming activities, but the worldwide organization with a well-rehearsed “elevator pitch.”

Television isn’t the only medium members have been taking advantage of – radio show promotion has been effective as well! Australia Northern District Field Representative and FF Brisbane member, Dennis, spoke about Friendship Force on Sarah’s Spot on Classic Hits 4CA!
