United States Coast Guard Auxiliary - Public Affairs

PA Marketing Division Banner

The Marketing Division plans and implements marketing strategies and programs, both short- and long-range, targeted toward promoting the benefits and activities of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and enhancing our image. Our mission is to promote the Auxiliary to our members, the public and the Coast Guard. Working in collaboration with entities of the Coast Guard Auxiliary, our mission is to maximize the positive exposure of the Auxiliary. While all of the constituencies are important, the most significant is our members. We strive to develop and provide programs to assist our members in the accomplishment of their missions.

The Marketing Division Team’s main goals are to create, communicate and deliver projects for our customers, clients, partners, and the public.

One of those goals is communication, via ads, educational materials and more.
