Message from the Chair

June 26, 2015

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

While we’re a long way from the days of paperboys standing on the street corner, each of us is looking for a way to get our stories out to the community.

We all know that our work is making a difference, but how do we share that with the public?

Generally our member and donor communications reach the people that already know us so how do we get our story to a wider audience? What even makes a story appealing to the local media?

Join us next month as our panel will feature contacts you need to know from local magazines, news, and media groups who will give us the scoop on how to get your organization or event covered.

 See you at the Arboretum!
