Faculty & Staff

When the Media Calls. . .What To Do and How We Can Help – Upcoming Workshops

What if a reporter calls your department looking for information or wanting to interview a faculty member or student? What if a TV crew comes to your class unannounced? Or a reporter calls to interview you?

Learn about the ICC Employee Media Policy and how to appropriately direct media calls you might receive. You’ll also learn what attracts media attention and how ICC’s Marketing & Communications staff can work with you to spread the word about ICC programs and events. Discussion will also include how to develop key messages and clearly communicate those key messages. Skills addressed in the workshop can be applied to everyday communication, not just media encounters. This session is open to all ICC employees, not just those who might serve as an “official spokesperson” for the College.

Sessions are scheduled for
Wednesday, September 3, 10 am – noon, AIT 203, East Peoria Campus and
Thursday, September 11, 2:30 – 4:30 pm, AIT 203, East Peoria Campus
The sessions are repeated. Participants need only attend one.
