“This workshop has been specifically designed to address the capacity building needs of nonprofit organizations,” said Fair Media Council Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director Jaci Clement. “Telling their stories and being part of the public conversation is often cited as one of the most challenging aspects for nonprofits. This workshop will offer insight into some of the best practices of effective media relations professionals in an atmosphere that encourages audience participation.”

This workshop will feature multiple presenters.

Tickets must be purchased in advance, and space is limited. To qualify for a $99 ticket, a nonprofit’s annual revenue must be less than $250,000.
