PRSA Dallas Hosts PR Workshop for Nonprofits

PRSA Dallas will host the third annual PR Workshop for Nonprofits on Friday, July 28, at the Dean Foods corporate office. This half-day workshop will be led by PRSA members as a chance to give back to the community by lending their time and expertise to deserving local causes. For these cause-driven organizations, it’s a chance for them to hone their messaging, digital marketing and media relations efforts for North Texas Giving Day and fall giving campaigns with tips and best practices from experts.

If you work with a nonprofit, you won’t want to miss this workshop! The event has sold out for the past two years, and we predict a similar count this year.

Members and non-members of PRSA Dallas are welcome to attend. Registration cost is $25 per person and includes breakfast. (Fee will be refunded to guests in attendance after the event only.) Registration is limited, so please sign-up quickly to reserve your spot! The PR Workshop for Nonprofits take place from 9 a.m. to noon and will include three engaging sessions:

  1. “Website Tips and Tricks,” presented by Chris Vary (co-owner of Vary Creative)
  2. “Pitching the Media,” led by Dallas Business Journals’ managing editor Jason Roberson
  3. “Marketing Feedback,” where PR practitioners will be available to discuss your organization’s goals and marketing problems.
