University of Findlay plans PR boot camp

Non-profit professionals are invited to attend “PR Boot Camp 2012” on June 12 at The University of Findlay. The daylong conference will focus on how to do more with less using public relations, digital media and innovative collaborations.

The Department of Communication at The University of Findlay is hosting the conference, which has been made possible with a grant from the Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation.

Delivering the keynote address, “Town and Gown: A Partnership of Excellence,” will be Dr. Janet Rice McCoy, associate professor of advertising and public relations at Morehead State University. Before returning to the university to teach, McCoy spent more than 20 years as a project coordinator, event planner, editor, grant writer, technical writer and trainer. With a passion for non-profit organizations, McCoy regularly integrates service learning into her teaching and actively engages her students with non-profit organizations (NPOs) throughout Kentucky. She also serves on the board of directors for the Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road Council.

Registration is $10 and includes a continental breakfast, boxed lunch and a series of workshops conducted by experts in strategic communication, social media, organizational communication and grant writing.

Space is limited to the first 50 registrants. Those interested in reserving a seat should contact Barbara Glock at or 419-434-6982.

TWEET-UP PLANNED – The Columbus Social Media Club will hold a tweet-up 7:30 a.m. April 17 at Camelot Cellars Winery in the Short North, 958 North High Street, Columbus.
