Those who met the Nov. 20 registration deadline are all set to take part in RMA’s professional development workkshop on social media this Saturday (Nov. 23) at St. John Fisher College.
The workshop — which is designed to help media professionals improve their social media activity, presence and branding — is co-sponsored by the RMA and the Fisher Department of Media and Communication (formerly Communication/Journalism). It will take place 9 a.m. to noon in the Wegmans School of Nursing Building on the Fisher campus and will include networking time plus two panel discussions on best practices for using social media tools. Use the campus East Entrance for easiest access, and look for signs directing you to the workshop site.
Scheduled to present on the panels are Tom Proietti, resident media scholar at St. John Fisher College; Craig Kanalley, social media manager for the Buffalo Sabres (and a former editor at both Huffington Post and NBC News); RMA’s own Rachel Barnhart of WROC-TV8 news, Berkeley Brean of News10NBC (WHEC), Nikki Rudd, also of WHEC Channel 10, Juan Vazquez of WXXI and Cynthia Benjamin of the Democrat and Chronicle Media Group.
