Media Relations Webinar this April

Posted on Tuesday, March 24th, 2020 | Posted in News

The news media plays a major role in shaping Americans’ opinions about their water and the people who are responsible for it. How can water quality professionals help shape the stories journalists tell about their work?

In an upcoming webinar, Eric Eckl of Water Words That Work, LLC will introduce public relations and digital media techniques for working with journalists.

The webinar, scheduled for Wednesday, April 29, from 2-3:30 pm EST, will be followed by two limited-enrollment small group practice sessions in early May. Register online for the webinar and to learn more about the practice sessions.

Since 2016, NEIWPCC, through a grant from EPA, has hosted a series of informational webinars for state, territorial, and tribal program staff working on pollution budgets in impaired waterways under section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act.

The webinar series is continuing our normal operations during the Coronavirus pandemic. The planning team remains committed to providing engaging and useful content for all during this time of disruption. We’re still accepting webinar proposals, and are especially seeking speakers who can address the impacts of COVID-19 on 303(d) and TMDL programs nationwide. Submit an abstract here or contact Emma Gildesgame with ideas. (Up to date information on Coronavirus’ impacts on NEIWPCC operations and events is always available on our website.)

The webinars have featured a diverse array of guest lecturers and experts on topics ranging from modeling tools to stakeholder engagement strategies. All previous webinar recordings, presentations, and supporting material are available in our archives. The webinar will be recorded and will be available online for those who cannot join on April 29.

Please contact Emma Gildesgame with any questions or comments.
