Field Representatives are appointed to a specific Region, however that authority is applicable to all Regions when the appointed Field Representative for a respective Region is not present. The four Officers of the Executive Committee of HRC, by virtue of the responsibilities of their office, carry the same authority and standing of Field Representatives.

Public Relations Representative

Each Region also has a Public Relations Representative who is responsible for covering HRC-related events for Hunting Retriever magazine, the official publication of HRC. Regional Representatives and a Chairman for the Committee are appointed by the President of HRC, Inc. with concurrence of the Executive Committee. The members of the Public Relations Committee must be in good standing with a local HRC Club within their Region and with the HRC. Their term of office is for two years. Public Relations Representatives are responsible for overseeing communications within the Region and directing questions to appropriate persons. Like the Field Representative, the Public Relations Representative assists the New Club Coordinator in finding and coordinating new Clubs. Most importantly, the Public Relations Representatives generate a positive image of HRC and are very active in promoting the principles of the organization.
A National Public Relations Committee Chair position was established in 2006. The National Chair oversees the Public Relations Committee Members as well as maintaining communications with New and Existing Clubs.
