Media Access Workshop a Success/May GB Meeting

Thank you to everyone who helped make last Saturday’s Accessing the Media workshop a success. And a special thank you to our volunteers and panelists: Joy Scott, Managing and Interactive Editor for the Shelby Star; Steve Crump, Reporter for WBTV; and Hope Paasch, Regional Editor for The Charlotte Observer.

Many of the workshop’s attendees thanked us for providing them with valuable tips and information, and for hosting this community event. Here’s a quote from an email we received from workshop participant Pamela Mahoney, PR Manager for the Charlotte Film Festival:

“Thank you for alerting me about the CAABJ Media Workshop. It was definitely a good event for me to attend. I gleaned useful information, and also met a number of helpful people.”
