Communicating in an Election Year
Thursday, May 26
Saint Paul Pioneer Press
10 River Park Plaza
The Superior, lower level conference room
Saint Paul, MN 55107
As we count down to the Presidential election day in November, we are witness to a new tech-driven electorate who receives their content through online sources and a 24 hour news cycle. Not only does this influence the choice of candidates for public office, the public is affected through social media posts by businesses, co-workers and friends. How can we as public relations professionals, advise our clients or employers to sort through the information and provide the best strategic plans forward? Whether we are analyzing a Presidential campaign or State of Minnesota election candidates, we are witness to a new political process. How did we get here? What have we learned?
Please join our amazing panel of experts on election public relations, public affairs, media and higher education for this informative event. Register soon, as seating space is limited!
