Grantees and advocates often say that the public dialogue about their issue hampers their ability to advance social change. In a recent Communications Network webinar, we explored analytical tools you can use to map the current dialogue about your issue, engage policymakers and influentials to change the dialogue, and evaluate the effectiveness of your efforts.
For our latest A Quick Word With…, we talk with Michael Hamill Remaley, senior vice president, public policy & communications, Philanthropy New York, who also created this series for the Communications Network.
What is an interesting communications project you are engaged in right now or a recent communications success you are particularly proud of?
In the first half of 2014, Philanthropy New York (and 16 other regional associations) will launch new organizational websites based on a common platform. But ours will have something no other RA will have: New York PhilanthoPOST. We will be presenting robust news aggregation, original news and provocative editorial content that focuses on the region’s immensely dynamic philanthropic community.
Happy New Year, everyone! The Communications Network Board has been in full gear over the holidays and is kicking off 2014 with the important work of finding our next Executive Director.
While Bruce Trachtenberg stays on part-time as an advisor, we are now searching in earnest for his replacement. The job description can be found here. We know that many of you out there are creative, visionary people who also work damn hard at your jobs, every single day. We want someone like that to be our next Executive Director. Someone who can build on Bruce’s leadership and accomplishments, who will respect the history and growth of the Network over the years, and who will have the foresight and know-how to take the Network forward into an exciting new future.
