Communicating History – Behind the Creation of Florida’s Constitution Revision Commission PR Strategy
- Location: Aloft Tallahassee Downtown
- Address: 200 N Monroe St, Tallahassee, FL 32301
- RSVP Deadline: January 29, 2018 at noon
A lot has evolved since 1998, the last time Florida citizens had the opportunity to change our state constitution through the Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) process. With the explosion of smartphones and a drastically different media landscape, the 2017-2018 CRC demanded an impressive strategy to educate the more than 20 million Floridians who stand to be affected. CRC Director of External Affairs Meredith Beatrice will share how she built this PR strategy from the ground up and how her professional journey brought her from an internship on Capitol Hill to where she is today.
This is a joint program between the Capital Chapter and LeadershipFPRA, a 12-month program providing members with tools to become stronger leaders in their organizations, communities and FPRA. Members of the current class will be joining us as part of their Government/Law/Ethics program in Tallahassee.
