How do charities and nonprofits use media to further their causes--and how do they pay for it? What are the unique needs and challenges facing these organizations? How can MCAI and media professionals support, contribute to and help expand the good work of philanthropic organizations?
On Wednesday evening, Sept 21, the OC/LA Chapter of MCAI www.socalmedispros.org joins with the OC Chapter of AFP, the Association of Fundraising Professionals www.afpoc.org to bring the worlds of professional media and nonprofit organizations together. This special panel discussion is being organized by AFP President, Scott Evans, and moderated by MCI Past President, Bill Ennis, who also serves on the board of AFP.
Join So Cal media professionals and representatives of non-profit orgs to discuss working together to solve the media communications needs of the multi-billion dollar philanthropic industry.
