Civil Air Patrol’s third national academy for public affairs officers will be held this summer and I am asking for your support in encouraging all region, wing, group and squadron PAOs to attend.
The 2012 PAO Academy, with the theme “Public Affairs in a Digital Age,” will be held Aug. 21-22 in Baltimore, Md., prior to the 2012 Annual Conference and National Board meeting. The event will feature remarks from Alan Black, secretary of the Air Force Office of Public Affairs, on the future of PA. Seminars will cover social media marketing, website marketing, news release writing, new media relations guidelines and PIO requirements, public affairs planning and crisis communications planning.
In addition, there will be discussions about PA’s recently updated regulation, 190-1, and what is now required of the organization’s 1,341 PAOs.
Academy participants will also receive a tour of the Defense Media Activity Center where all DoD media are housed.
PAOs can register by clicking on www.capmembers.com, the National Board icon and then preconference seminars.
For more information, contact Julie DeBardelaben – firstname.lastname@example.org, or Maj. Steven Solomon - email@example.com.
