NAICU Washington Update

NAICU E-lists Serve Member Presidents – Plus Public Relations, Government Relations Staff

July 18, 2007

Increasingly, NAICU is moving to electronic communications – through e-mail and a completely redesigned Web site – to keep members informed of developments in Washington, national media coverage and trends, and news about our member colleges and universities.  These timely and expanding channels of communication serve not just NAICU member presidents, but their government relations and public relations staffs as well.  Our e-mail lists include the following.
  • NAICU PresNet is used to alert presidents to breaking news of importance to them.  Over 90 percent of our approximately 950 member presidents are on the list.
  • NAICU PRNet informs member public relations staffs of media staffing changes, media requests for sources on developing stories, and major trends in media coverage.
  • NAICU GovNet provides legislative information and perspective on issues of interest to campus federal and state relations staff members.
  • Week in Review Electronic Edition gets this newsletter to you days ahead of the print version.
Messages to all three lists often carry links to the NAICU Web site for more detailed information, and to other informational resources.  All three lists are used very judiciously to avoid unnecessary messages – lists average no more than a couple messages a week over time – and subscribers can unsubscribe easily at any time.Get maximum benefit from your NAICU membership by subscribing to the lists of interest to you – and encourage your public relations and government relations staff to subscribe to the lists tailored to their interests.  To sign up for any of the lists, send an e-mail to specifying the requested list and including the subscriber’s  name, title, and institution.  (Subscriptions are available to staff at NAICU member institutions only.)
