“Media Training for Local Government Leaders”

This FCCMA District III Media Training for Local Government Leaders brings together an experienced group of professionals with both local government and external media experience who will share their stories and provide practical advice to attendees on understanding the media. Our discussion will start with some basics and evolve into tips and examples to help attendees successfully navigate the media world. We’ll cover aspects including how to approach reporters to initiate a story, interview dos and don’ts, responding to media requests, the power of honesty, and of course, the reminder that nothing is ever “off the record”.

Other topics to be covered include recognizing and avoiding traps, press releases (quality, not quantity), networking, being proactive, media monitoring, and using social media. We will also have a focus on crisis communications as we discuss experiences including Presidential visits, hurricane responses, and handling major water and sewer outages. Our goal is to make this informative, entertaining, and practical, so bring your questions, challenges, and stories, and we’ll enjoy a great training together!
