“April is Media Relations Month at PRSA Colorado.” This was the header of a recent email I received and it’s one that certainly got my attention, as that’s what I spend the majority of my workdays doing. Anyone else who does the same, or who aspires to, should check out PRSA Colorado’s April calendar of event. Here’s a quick review:
Annual Media Roundtable Luncheon – April 23 at 11:30 a.m.
This looks like a great opportunity to hear from many of Denver’s leading news organizations including 5280, Denver Business Journal, Fox 31, CBS-4, KMGH-TV, KOA and Colorado Public Radio. PRSA says you’ll discover what’s on the minds of today’s most influential journalists; take the first step in building a lasting relationship with media members and maximize your media relations efforts and expand your media lists.
Young Pros Media Panel – April 23 at 10:30 a.m.
Young PR pros have the opportunity to hear directly from a few members of the media before the Media Roundtable luncheon on April 23. They can hear about the basics of media relations tailored specifically to them. The discussion will focus on the do’s and don’ts, tips to get your stories covered and the best way to communicate with reporters, producers and editors.
If these events don’t fit your schedule, there’s another opportunity!
The New Secrets of Media Pitching Success: Webinar – April 17 at 11 a.m.
The host of this national webinar will offer tips for creating compelling content, reporter follow-up and how to ensure your stories get the attention they deserve.
The PRSA Colorado website includes plenty of details, reduced pricing options for members and allows you to register online. Hope to see you there!
