- Communications Committee
RILA’s Communication Committee is composed of senior communications executives from leading retail member companies.
As our members navigate the changing media landscape and evolving industry reputational issues and opportunities, RILA provides a forum for peer-to-peer networking, benchmarking, crisis training, and best practices discussions focused around the corporate communications function.
The group meets in person once a year to collaborate on strategic messaging and discuss pressing issues facing the industry from a communications perspective, and via conference call as issues arise.
For more information and to get involved, contact RILA Vice President, Communications & Media Relations Melissa.Murdock@RILA.org.
