For staff charged with operating new architecture centers, it doesn’t take long before the rush of weekly programming demands begins to rule the roost. Push back and gain some much needed thinking space at this year’s Boot Camp. This time around we focus on practical strategies that test if you’ve really found your primary audience. Build on this knowledge by considering how to engage media sources to help you start gaining press coverage to establish public understanding of your organization’s core purpose. Finally, take that knowledge and match it up with today’s institutional fundraising opportunities.
Topics to be covered include:
* Defining Your Organization’s Primary Audience
* Understanding the Habits and Preferences of Your Audience
* 10 Must Dos to Publicize Your Organization
* How to Become a Go-To Source for Press
* Partners and Programs: Locating Your Institutional Merits in Fundraising Today
