Does your organization suffer from the lack of a strategic, intentional approach to communication that clearly defines your messages, your audience and the tools you will use to achieve your objectives? Do you have a plan that builds relationships and maximizes marketing efforts? Participants in this class will learn how to create a comprehensive communication plan, from assessing communication or marketing needs to designing communication strategies and tactics. A good communication plan helps build relationships with key publics, including volunteers, donors, and the media as well as reduce potential risks, and this class will provide a thorough overview of how this is done.
