32 Miss. Code. R. § 23-4.05 - Public Relations and Outreach Information
Addie McBryde Rehabilitation Center for the Blind maintains an active, ongoing public information (PI) program that serves to promote understanding and support of the Center while preserving and respecting the dignity and rights of the persons served. The Center plans, initiates, and documents PI activities. Open houses, involvement in local interagency councils or boards, press releases, and presentations to civic organizations represent examples of PI activities. PI is the key to community support and serves to enhance the viability of the Center. The Center Director is directly involved in PI activities and other related duties but is provided support and technical assistance from specialized Center staff. (Reference: "Public Information and Outreach" file.)
The purposes of the Center are clearly stated in various publications which are distributed to staff, those served, referral sources, and other interested individuals or groups. All Center brochures and other appropriate publications contain descriptions of the services available and are designed to enhance the value of the persons served. All PI activities are conducted in accordance with MDRS Policy Manual, 1.10 Public Information Guidelines, page 1-28.
State regulations are updated quarterly; we currently have two versions available. Below is a comparison between our most recent version and the prior quarterly release. More comparison features will be added as we have more versions to compare.
