Presenter

Jason Carr, NNCO Advisory Committee, Community Relations Manager, Cypress Creek Renewables

In today’s world of social media, information is instantaneous. Individuals have become modern-day journalists and controlling information is almost impossible. That’s why all organizations – private or nonprofit – should be out in front telling their story. Doing so will help create a better image for the organization and can directly impact everything from volunteer recruitment, to fundraising, and community engagement. If you don’t tell your story, somebody else will. And the outcome is never certain. Presentation topics will include:

  • What is communications and why it’s important
  • Know your audience. Who are you communicating to/with and why?
  • What are your goals? Fundraising? Constituent building? Providing information?
  • Know the tools available and what your audience uses the most: website, social media, etc.
  • Engaging with the media to leverage positive outcomes
  • Recovering from public mistakes
  • Creating a communications plan, but keep it simple
