July 2019 Professional Development Luncheon

July 17 @ 11:45 am - 1:30 pm

NCLocal: What local news will look like in 2020. 

Despite all you might hear, local news in North Carolina isn’t disappearing. It’s changing, and changing quickly and dramatically. And if you work in the area of public relations, you want to keep up with those changes, understand them, and recognize what they mean for your brands, your agencies, and your clients. One of the folks who knows what those changes mean for our state best is Melanie Sill, a long-time journalist in North Carolina and former executive editor of The News & Observer and The Sacramento Bee, and vice president of content for Southern California Public Radio. She’s been writing about North Carolina’s changing media landscape in a weekly newsletter, NCLocal, since April 2018. She chronicles the efforts underway to retain high-quality sources of news and information in our state. You can begin tapping into Melanie’s insights by signing up for her weekly newsletter. Just email msill@melaniesill.com or sign up directly here: https://t.co/QnquFRTN28

NCPRSA Refund Policy

For NCPRSA events (professional development, networking, skills, etc.), no refunds will be issued if the event is postponed by the Chapter due to an act of nature (snow, hurricane, etc.). If the Chapter cancels the event, refunds in full will be made as soon as feasible. If for some reason you are unable to attend an event for which you registered and paid, no refund will be issued, so we encourage you to transfer your registration to another professional.
