Making Media Connections 2012: Engaging Audiences With Blazing Social Media Tactics

Previous Next

One of the Community Media Workshop’s key events each year since 1993, the Making Media Connections conference is designed for nonprofit communicators—volunteers and staff who are responsible for telling their group’s story through the news media or other channels. We bring them together with journalists looking for stories "off the beaten path" and invite them to join in a dialogue on how to produce news that matters. 

Chad Mertz (Chicago Children’s Museum), Edgar Pineda (Latinos Progresando), Kristi Sanford (A Just Harvest), and moderator Jonathan Eyler-Werve discuss how nonprofits can engage audiences using social media. 

Recorded Thursday, June 14, 2012 at Columbia College Chicago.
