Helping History Make Its Mark

Having an opportunity to blend marketing, public relations and advertising strategies can really help amplify a fundraising campaign. During this presentation, we’ll take you through a statewide campaign case study, step-by-step to review the strategy, the deliverables and lessons learned. Attendees will learn how to identify and activate a grassroots target audience, use new media tools effectively and drive for results.  Invite your marketing and communications staff!
