HUBBARD COMMUNICATIONS OFFICE
Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead, Sussex
HCO POLICY LETTER OF 13 MARCH 19611
DEPARTMENT OF OFFICIAL AFFAIRS
(Cancels earlier directives concerning
Depts of Government Relations and
Anyone now holding post as Dept of Government Relations or as Director of Special Programs should be retitled “Department of Official Affairs.”
The field responded only faintly to special programs.
The activities connected with governments have increased.
Where field activities warrant, a Central Organization may have a Department of Official Affairs to combine all former duties and activities performed by the Department of Government Relations and Special Programs.
Where such departments do not exist, all such activities will be handled by the Assoc Sec or the HCO Continental Secretary. But where much time is being spent on government liaison, cooperation with societies and the filing of legal papers and matters, a Department of Official Affairs must be created as per HCO PL 13 Mar. 61 I, DEPARTMENT OF OFFICIAL AFFAIRS, as these matters are time consuming and deter the Assoc Sec from performing his intraorganizational duties.
