Chicago, Illinois - The last of NRA's staff arrived in Chicago Friday night for a final once over of the plan. And what's the plan? To transfer as much information as possible to the people make their way out to the Hilton Garden Inn for today's Leadership and Development Workshop. Located only a few miles from O'Hare International Airport, the Chicago seminar is the final workshop of 2011. Guess the pressure is on.
As a member of the Media Relations staff, I've been tasked to talk about (you guessed it) Media Relations. Dealing with reporters, making an impression on the community, bringing potential members to your club, etc... But it doesn't stop there ... past professional stints in the Internet and Marketing arenas means I get to share my insights on website design, search engine optimization and making plans to promote your operation. It's going to be quite a day.
We'll also have Eric to talk about building & maintaining a range, Melissa on Club Benefits, Son as our emcee and a handful of others to fill in the grant application, insurance and other gaps.
So stay put and we'll pass on updates as time allows.
