Working with the Media Workshop
November 27, 2012
Do your local media outlets only seem to give negative reports? Do you wish you had more control over what your constituents hear about you and your community? Should you ever say "no comment" or go "off the record?" If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this training is for you. This training will cover developing positive relationships with media outlets, how to represent yourself as a public leader, and the impact of social media.
