We are expanding our annual media summit this year. So much of the conversation is happening beyond the scope of traditional media, we wanted to be able to incorporate those viewpoints and connect our members to content creators working in those spaces.
Partnering with the North Florida chapter of the Public Relations Society of America, we are able to bring you a full month of programming on media relations. March Media begins on March 1 with the ever-popular Media Roundtable event. This in-person luncheon, hosted by ReThreaded gives our members a chance to hear directly from reporters, editors, and managers at Jacksonville-area news outlets. Networking is the cornerstone of this event, with most of the session dedicated to small-group conversations between attendees and media professionals. Plus, you won't want to miss the delicious lunch provided by our event sponsor, Firehouse Subs!
This year, though, the opportunities continue beyond the roundtable with Zoom sessions each Tuesday. These sessions will focus conversation on hot topics in media relations and issues management. Mark your calendars and register today!
