Media Relations Training
The Huntington District’s Public Affairs Office conducted media relations training for 30 members of the Huntington workforce at Beech Fork Lake. The facilitator was Dr. Joseph Trahan III of Trahan and Associates. This training improves the district's team members understanding of communication techniques and increases their confidence when telling the district’s story through the media. Each day long course focused on developing effective messages, techniques in answering tough questions, techniques to prepare for media engagements, effectively dealing with reporters and how to conduct on camera interviews. The training included two on camera experiences. The techniques taught in dealing with the media are transferrable to speaking to stakeholders and the general public. A second iteration of media training is scheduled for 28-29 June 2016.
