Join us for our next GFW PRSA luncheon on Wednesday, February 14, at Colonial Country Club!

Crises can happen to any organization at any time, and in a world where anyone with a smartphone can become a “journalist,” it’s important for you to control the narrative. What happens next?

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport social media manager John Valadez’s first step is always to consult the established and practiced crisis plan. Learn how you can prepare for any crisis, and why organizations like the Airport have a social-first crisis program.

New Year’s Resolutions for PR Professionals

Panelists:

  • Lane Borrello, GM Financial
  • Jeff Carlton, UNT Health Science Center
