Last month I attended the first meeting of the New York City Public Policy Communicators Group. I blogged about it here. Well the event was a great success and they’ve just scheduled their second meeting for Friday, December 12th. The topic, which was chosen via a survey distributed to the participants at the first meeting, will be the most effective methods and best experiences in reaching high profile columnists or editorial boards. Other topics that were ranked high in the survey of participants were the best practices in online communications, how to use social networking to advance your issues, and measuring the effectiveness of your communication efforts. I hope we get to explore some of these topics in future meetings.
If you want to attend, you can RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org. The meeting will be held at the New York Times Building, 620 Eighth Avenue (between 40th and 41st street), at the offices of Covington and Burling.
And lastly - the group is looking for a new name. Any suggestions out there?
