Learn How to Tie Your Organization or Clients to Top Elected Officials

Communications Officers to Provide Tips at PRSA April 16 Program

So, your company, organization or a client is having a special event or introducing a new product or program. You – or your boss or your client – wants a high-profile officeholder to attend, but you don’t have a personal connection with anyone. How can you make that happen? And how can your organization tie into elected officials’ initiatives? Is it hard to make news?

Tie into existing news! Attendees will learn the most effective way of initiating productive contacts between their organizations and the elected officials.

Hear advice from those who know when the Central Chesapeake Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America hosts press secretaries from the offices of the governor, county executive and Annapolis mayor at “Political Connecting,” a luncheon seminar on Thursday, April 16, from noon to 1:30 p.m. at Stan & Joe’s Saloon, 37 West St., Annapolis.

Giving a concise presentation and then answering questions at “Political Connecting” will be:

  • Matt Clark, Communications Director for Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan
  • Owen McEvoy, Public Information Officer for Anne Arundel County Executive Steven Schuh
  • Rhonda Wardlaw, Public Information Officer for Annapolis Mayor Michael Pantelides.

The seminar including lunch costs $25 for chapter members and $30 for non-members and guests. Reserve a place ahead of time online here or by emailing Susan Gross at scgross@aacc.edu by Monday, April l3.
