Getting the word out is a critical task for the success of any nonprofit organization. Los Alamos Community Foundation is excited to announce the first in a series of training sessions designed to help nonprofit organizations make better use of a variety of media resources.
Harnessing the Power of the Media — Part 1:
Press Releases and Community News Reporting
- Thursday, March 23 at 5 p.m.
- Bldg. 2 Lecture Hall, UNM-LA
When a press release is done right the first time, it has the greatest chance of being published in a timely fashion. Carol A. Clark, the publisher and editor of the Los Alamos Daily Post, will teach how to put together a proper press release containing all the essential elements. And although there are more events taking place in this vibrant community than there are reporters to cover them, Bonnie Gordon, the lifestyles editor and artistic director of the LA Daily Post, will talk about steps nonprofits can take to bring greater recognition to nonprofit activities.
The training will run about one hour in length and is an opportunity to acquire or refresh effective and time-saving media communications skills. Nonprofit executive directors, staff, board members and volunteers are all welcome and encouraged to attend. There is no cost.
Part 2 of this series will take place later in the summer and focus on social media for nonprofits.
This nonprofit training session is jointly sponsored by Los Alamos Community Foundation in partnership with the LANL Foundation and UNM-LA. For more information about Los Alamos Community Foundation, visit www.losalamoscf.org.
