Handout:  Press Release Tips

Getting the word out is a critical task for the success of any nonprofit. Los Alamos Community Foundation is excited to announce a series of training sessions designed to help nonprofit organizations make better use of a variety of media resources.

Harnessing the Power of the Media – Part 1:
Press Releases and Community News Reporting

Thursday, Mar 23rd, 5:00 p.m.
Bldg. 2 Lecture Hall, UNM-LA

When your press release is done right the first time, it has the greatest chance of being published in a timely fashion. Carol A. Clark, the publisher and editor of the Los Alamos Daily Post, will teach you how to put together a proper press release containing all the essential elements. And although there are more events taking place in this vibrant community than there are reporters to cover those events, Bonnie Gordon, the lifestyles editor and artistic director of the LA Daily Post, will talk about steps you can take to bring greater recognition to your nonprofit activities.

This training session is an excellent opportunity for anyone associated with a nonprofit organization to learn key skills that boost efficiency and save time. Executive directors, staff, board members and volunteers are all welcome and encouraged to attend.

Note:  Part 2 of this series will take place later in the summer and will focus on social media. Stay tuned for details in future newsletters and updates!

Nonprofit training sessions sponsored by Los Alamos Community Foundation are made possible with generous support from UNM-Los Alamos and the LANL Foundation.
