The External Affairs committee's purpose is to put a face and voice to the DANK Haus by maintaining its website content,  fostering its presence and programming through public relations, and providing oversight of its advertising and promotional materials. Working closely with our professional staff, the External Affairs committee contributes to signage, print advertising and marketing communications as well as social media coordination and outreach. Committee members also work to build and maintain a network of partnerships with allied cultural, fraternal and social organizations. The External Affairs Committee meets every 1st Tuesday, 7:00 PM, at the DANK Haus. If you wish to attend, please email the committee Chair to confirm the meeting date.
