MEET THE MEDIA
Calling all PR and communications pros: It’s time to meet the media!
WMPRSA's Meet the Media event is just around the corner, and it’s always one of our best events of the season. We’ll welcome back the popular speed pitching format where PR pros will have four minutes with media to introduce themselves, share a bit about their organizations/clients and to pitch away!
These four-minute meetings go fast - so be prepared, plan your story pitches and maximize your time.
Arrive early to book the appointments you’re looking for. The appointment sign-up sheets will be available at 11 a.m. on a first come, first served basis.
Many members of the West Michigan media have been invited, and we are still working to confirm the final list of attendees. Updates will be posted to our website.
