    Am I the only one who doesn’t like this ‘goal’?

      Well, I would hope any PR person has the goal of making his/her organization the go-to place for information about their constituency. Seems like a standard expectation for the job.

        But, if I’m not mis-reading things, it sounds like they want to be the “go-to” place for all US non-theists; not just for card-carrying members.  Not all atheists agree with AA’s mission statement, goals or methods.  In my mind, it would be equivalent to the catholic church being the go-to place for all US theists…you end up with a horrid misrepresentation of the purported representees.

          for profit or not, getting the right PR is the lifeblood of any org. if you’re not in it to be the top voice on your chosen topic, why bother?

          they may not speak for you today. but the right PR director would make you want them to. that’s the point.

    A PR function without being able to play the religion card to appeal to religious people … tricky ;)

    Hardest job in the world?
