Getting to Grips with Social PR
Join Nationally Recognized Speaker Shonali Burke
Thursday, October 12.

"Social media" is no longer something "the kids" do; it's part and parcel of 21st century communications. Yet even today, many practitioners don't adequately harness the true power and promise of social technologies for their work, still functioning in somewhat of a silo, instead of as Social PR Superheroes.

At this event, join Shonali Burke, ABC, an award-winning and globally-recognized Social PR strategist, teacher and trainer, to learn the latest tricks of the trade. This event is sponsored by Appalachian Power.
