Media Relations Volunteer
2 people are interested
Media Relations Volunteers act as the eyes and ears of the Alzheimer’s Association, monitoring local news outlets for opportunities to engage the media in telling stories or sharing information related to the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Media Relations Volunteers are needed throughout the 8 county area that the Greater Sacramento office serves: Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, El Dorado, Stanislaus, San Joaquin, Nevada, and Amador.
Projects include monitoring local newspapers to identify topics related to the Alzheimer's Association mission; monitor other local media (broadcast, internet, social) and identify ways to engage; identify local media members who report on dementia, Alzheimer's disease, and other relevant topics; under direction of Communications staff, reach out to local reporters with news and information; write or coordinate others to write Letters to the Editor; and assist with placement of calendar items.
This would be a great opportunity for a volunteer with a Communications background, or who is a current Communications major.
We'll work with your schedule.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
