Getting Beyond The Buzzword to Engage Your Community (Part 2)
Apr 29 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

NENPA members please contact Tara Cleary at for the free registration code.

In this webinar: Engagement is on every editor’s lips, it’s the journalism buzzword with endless definitions. Engagement isn’t just clicks and likes, sometimes it is relational, creating deeper relationships with readers, building trust between the community and the journalist. Engagement can mean community participation in news, community organizing, or building loyalty with would-be subscribers or members. Our second session will focus on 5-10 strategies and tools your newsroom can employ to cultivate the kinds of engagement you value most. These aren’t pie-in-the-sky theories, just practical solutions for refining your engagement strategy.
