Chapter Briefing

Tips to Help Promote Your Chapter in the Media
Building relationships with local media begins with some research of your chapterís local media outlets, thinking about what will catch the eyes of the reporters and developing ongoing relationships. Some chapters are fortunate to have members with marketing or public relations experience.

For those chapters that need some pointers on how to get started in building media attention, EAA has a Media Tip Card to help your chapter down the path of a stronger media presence. The tip card gives a nice overview of concepts in getting a positive message out as well as what to do in case of an emergency.


Next issue of ChapterGram will be delivered on Tuesday, November 13.
