When people get their information from so many media sources (social media, TV, and the newspaper are just a few) there are quite a few ways for organizations like Junior League of Bakersfield to get messages out: We exist! We do good work! We are an important part of the community! But, we can always do a better job of getting our stories heard by the community. How do we do that? How can we best use the different kinds of media available to us as a non-profit, and as volunteers, to spread the word about not only our events but also our mission and goals?
The training committee has put together a new and exciting social media training Junior League to learn strategies on how to best use the varying modes of media to communicate with our community. A training workshop will be held Tuesday, April 21 from 5:30-8:15 pm at the Junior League Community House. Kerry Rego of Kerry Rego Consulting was so well received as our December Keynote speaker and so she will be returning as the facilitator of the main session.
A breakout session on social media advertising will also be facilitated by Kerry, and additional breakout sessions will be facilitated by the training committee’s own Colleen Dillaway and Sarah Downie. Yes, we have experts in our midst! Colleen has served as the face of Bright House Networks and CSUB and has years of on-camera and media interview experience. Sarah is a teacher and published author who is currently working to complete her Masters Degree at CSUB.
