Announcing Communications Reps SIG

The Mozilla Reps program aims to empower and support volunteer Mozillians who want to become official representatives of Mozilla in their region/locale.  A few weeks ago, William shared the news that the Mozilla Reps program would be expanding to include Special Interest Groups.  Today, I'm incredibly proud to officially announce Mozilla's Communications Reps Special Interest Group.

There are many areas of PR/Communications where Mozillians can get involved and make a big impact. As a Comms Reps, you will have an opportunity to get hands-on experience while working alongside one of the most innovative PR teams working in tech today.  You will learn PR fundamentals, including how to share Mozilla news and announcements, draft media pitches, monitor and analyze coverage, and conduct outreach to local media contacts.

We're kicking off the Comms Reps program with sessions at the upcoming MozCamp events in Berlin and KL.  To join the Comms Reps program, please fill out the following form: We look forward to hearing from you!

A heartfelt thank you to Mozilla's PR intern, Annika Heinle, who worked this summer to build out the infrastructure for the Comms Reps SIG and to Shannon Prior, Annika's summer mentor.
