I’m participating in a panel discussion about blogs tomorrow for an association of museums, venues, and other cultural organizations here in DC. Although it’s designed for their members’ PR people, the info is after the jump if you’re curious. I’m looking forward to participating.
PR & Marketing Roundtable
February 9, 2006 Meeting
Join Cultural Tourism DC for the PR & Marketing Roundtable! Meet with peers
to network, share strategies, talk about common challenges, and find
opportunities to collaborate.
The PR & Marketing Roundtable is a bi-monthly informal forum for discussing
current issues of interest to public relations & marketing practitioners at
museums, performing arts venues, and other cultural organizations in
Washington. Laura Baptiste, public affairs officer, Smithsonian American Art
Museum, serves as chair.
The Wide World of Blogs
We’ll consider how to create a blog, how to maintain it, and whether you
should have one to begin with. We’ll also look at how to pitch blog writers
for online media coverage.
