Media Advocacy Webinar (Harrisburg onsite or through personal computer and phone)   

Most people get their information and often form opinions based on reports from the news media—newspapers, television and radio.  Successful advocacy groups know how to work with the media to deliver their messages and educate members of their communities, as well as policy makers and key decision makers.  Marie Yeager, an Emmy Award winning television news producer and communications consultant, will help workshop participants learn to use media to attain your goals.

You will learn:

  1. How to write a news release
  2. Tips for working with the media
  3. How to formulate your message and educate the community

Please help us by letting others know about the training (Word version of flyer)
