Friday March 2, Meredith Foster of Girl Scouts spoke to the class regarding public relations for non-profit businesses. While her presentation was full of advice there were three things that I think were most beneficial to remember.
- As a public relations professional if you work for a non-profit business there will not be a large budget. This is important because you will be asked to “wear a lot of hats”.
- Another key point was to know your audience. Meredith understood who was reading her social media posts and strategically planned posts at times that would recieve the most views.
- Lastly, building a portfolio was a point she emphasized. She could not stress enough how important it is to be able to prove you work to possible employers.
