UPCOMING WEBINARS:

April 14, 2022
11:00 A.M. – 12:00 P.M.

CRISIS COMMUNICATIONS FOR MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT
Speaker: Mark Weaver, Isaac Wiles

Presentation Description: Facing the news media can be nerve-racking even under the best conditions. Now imagine yourself in a crisis or emergency situation facing hostile reporters who want answers to their tough questions. What would you do? What do you say? 
 
Learn the basics of news media and the rules of engagement (what you should & shouldn't say). Get tips for composing an effective message and compiling a plan to advance that message using earned media tactics such as print, radio, TV and social media. 

By the end of the session you’ll not only have a much better idea of what it feels like to face the media, especially in a crisis communication situation, you’ll have a summary of specific take-away points to help you face a crisis communications situation in real life. 
 
Your presenter is Mark Weaver, a national communications advisor with nearly three decades of national and Ohio-based experience with public and private sector clients on crisis communications and media relations. He’ll lead the group through interactive lecture and simulations in the art of dealing with the media, especially in a crisis or emergency situation.

WEBINAR COST: $125 per registrant/municipality

Registrants are encouraged to set up for the webinar in a conference room, with a speaker phone and computer screen, and to invite other city/village officials to attend. (In this situation, only one registration is necessary for the host.)

Due to current circumstances, we realize most people may be accessing these webinars separately from their homes. In this situation, you must fill out a registration form for each participant so that they will receive the links to join the webinars. There is no limit to the number of attendees from each community. Your municipality counts as 1 registrant and the $125 fee is per city/village, no matter how many individuals participate separately.

Payment can be made by check or credit card. If you choose to pay by check, please mail your check, payable to OMAA, to 175 S. Third Street, Suite 510, Columbus, OH 43215. If you choose to pay by credit card, you will receive a link to do so with the registration confirmation once you complete the online registration form. (*Please include the name/date of the webinar with your payment.)

If we should bill someone besides the municipality, please indicate the name and full address of that entity on your registration form in the comments field.
