Media Pros and nonprofit org reps join together for mutual benefit on Sept 21
Philanthropy is a multi-billion dollar industry. To help people, they need to spend some of that money on communications: PSA spots, promoting fundraising events; direct appeals for donations; newsletters; websites; training; public awareness and more.
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? What's the best way MCAI and media professionals can do business them? Bring your experiences to share and media ideas that may help support and expand the good work of philanthropic organizations.
The OC/LA Chapter of MCAI www.socalmedispros.org is joining 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.
