Upcoming FMC NYC Workshops Target Improved Media Relations for Nonprofits & Area Businesses
(Long Island, NY) The Fair Media Council has set two Media Fix Workshops in May and June in Manhattan. The goal of the events is to provide nonprofits and businesses with hands-on training classes where they can learn how to successfully craft story pitches, get access to New York metro area media and have the chance to get into the news.
The first event, “Create the Perfect Pitch,” is Tuesday, May 14 from 8:30-10:30 am at the University Settlement at the Houston Street Center, 273 Bowery Street in downtown Manhattan. During this event FMC Executive Director Jaci Clement will teach participants the step by step process on how to pitch your story to the New York media.
“So many times I hear how our members and other businesses have a great story but nobody knows about it. This workshop will teach participants how to get their stories heard,” Clement explained.
On Tuesday, June 18, from 8:30-10:30 am at First Republic Bank, 1230 Avenue of the Americas, the workshop is entitled “Get Your News On: Meet and Pitch the Media,” and will focus specifically on taking your business or non-profit to the next level by learning how to get attention from the media and getting your organization in the news. Every time FMC holds one of these workshops, three or four organizations get into the news.
