The Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador is hosting a workshop to help you improve your knowledge of media relations and your ability to get the word out about your organization.
We often depend on the media to disseminate information, promote events and cover our news stories of interest to the public. However, in many non-profits, it is not feasible to have a dedicated resource for public and media relations and this role falls to other people within the organization who may not have media experience.
This workshop will instruct you: how write or improve your media releases, how to pitch stories to the media; and how to improve your ability to work with the media overall.
When: June 2, 2012
Where: 1 Springdale St., St. John’s, Boardroom, Heritage Foundation of NL
Time: 10:00 a.m. to Noon
Cost: $25/$15 for students
