OHSPRA and OSBA will once again team up to host the 2022 Fall Communications Virtual Workshop on October 27. Based on anecdotal and survey input from OHSPRA members and suggestions from OSBA staff members, we will be addressing the following topics during the Fall Workshop:
- Safety. With safety -- particularly school safety -- top-of-mind, how are you communicating with your community this school year about what you have in place to keep your schools safe?
- Communications Plans. After 2-1/2 unique school years when most “plans” went out the window, how can you take your communications plan off the shelf, dust it off, and make it relevant again?
- Editorial Calendars. How do you set up an editorial calendar so you have a visual workflow that helps a team of content creators/collaborators schedule their work on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, and keep your work life organized.
- Staff Recruitment. What unique and effective things are communications/PR people doing to assist their districts in recruiting staff members?
We know the talent pool is deep among our OHSPRA membership, so if you have expertise with (or just an interest in!) sharing how you/your district are doing any of these things really well, please consider throwing your hat in the ring as a presenter for the Fall Workshop.
Please contact Kari Basson, director of professional development, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 937-499-1468, if you would be willing to serve as a workshop presenter and for additional information on the workshop and/or topics.
