Uh, oh! Talk about a plan going so very wrong. Due to the short notice, the original thought for the media panel for nonprofits was that perhaps a couple dozen would sign up. So, the free Friday, January 22nd conversation hosted by the Dallas Women’s Foundation was announced last Wednesday.
But, oh, no! The Foundation just sent word that registrations went way beyond the original guesstimate. Now, the event is within a hair’s breadth of being filled to capacity at Campbell Center II!
Thank heaven, the Foundation is as flexible as a Cirque du Soleil acrobat and is making room to accommodate more folks who do the juggling work between charities and the media.
The conversation will be honest in the hopes that it will better help those working with nonprofits communicate with the media. And, who knows? Perhaps the panelists will learn a thing or two, too.
Warning: While the conversation will be informative and fun, there will be no “bleeping” talk. After all, Ricky Gervais ain’t gonna be part of the panel. Instead it will be Kristina Bowman wearing her latest leg wear, WFAA’s Ron Corning possibly doing his “Phil Donahue” Q&A with guests, PaperCity’s too-adorable-for-words Jane Rozelle and MySweetCharity’s Jeanne Prejean channeling Murphy Brown.
The message here: Sign up now.
