Wanted: Nonprofits Looking for Public Relations Guidance

FPRA Capital Chapter professionals accepting applications through July 12 for ‘ER for PR’ event

TALLAHASSEE – Local communications professionals are offering a half day of public relations guidance to qualifying nonprofit organizations. Hosted by the Florida Public Relations Association Capital Chapter, the annual ER for PR event pairs local nonprofits with public relations experts for a complimentary training and one-on-one counseling session.

Organizations are selected based on request type and availability of expert consultants. Local and state nonprofits interested in participating are encouraged to apply online by 5 p.m. on Thursday, July 12. The event will be Thursday, July 19, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at the Florida Sheriffs Association, 2617 Mahan Drive, in Tallahassee. To apply, click here.

“ER for PR is one of the many ways our members give back every year,” said chapter president Molly Kellogg-Schmauch. “It’s an exceptional opportunity for these local organizations to get advice and guidance from some of the most creative and talented PR pros in our community.”

Before the 90-minute, one-on-one guidance sessions begin, the selected nonprofits will enjoy a continental breakfast and educational session about social media from chapter social media chair Jennifer Krell Davis, deputy public information director for The Florida Bar. Organizations will receive a free toolkit with helpful tips on writing press releases, determining media sources and general public relations information, instead of written plan.

ER for PR activities are free of charge for participating nonprofit organizations. There is a nominal fee for nonprofits wishing to attend the Capital Chapter’s July luncheon program that immediately follows from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
