This will be our last Membership Meeting before our 24th Annual Conference on October 25th. Following lunch, we will have a business meeting and then hear from some local experts in the field on how to best work with the media – in good times and bad.
Any press may be good press, but good press is even better. Yet, how do you stand out among your competitors and catch the attention of journalists? The traditional route is to pitch your story directly to reporters and hope it’s compelling enough that they’ll bite, or to offer your expertise around breaking news topics with your fingers crossed that the reporter is even working on a story about whatever that might be. Join us to hear from two perspectives – one from the source of the news with Abilene Public Information Officer Alaisha Montanez and one from those that report the news with Abilene Reporter News Reporter Ron Erdrich. In light of recent events associated with Hurricane Harvey as well as all the good news happening within the TMCN region, this promises to be a very informative and worthwhile presentation!
