2010 Regional Meetings

In addition to a meeting in Boston addressing the issue of PILOTs and a strategy session in the Pioneer Valley, there were six regional meetings as MNN’s first phase of a public awareness campaign. At these meetings attendees received a media training from notable communications firm Morrissey & Company, who generously donated their expertise pro bono. Topics ranged from social media and writing press releases to who the local reporters are and how to pitch stories to them. During the discussion times, attendees immediately took advantage of what they were learning and found ways to collaborate on news stories. Local state senators and representatives also attended to offer their advice on garnering support for legislation.
