Registration is now open for the Episcopal Church in Vermont Communications Workshop on October 26, 2013!
Please come to:
- Help us develop the messages we want to communicate about the Episcopal Church in Vermont.
- Help us identify and understand our audiences and how best to reach them.
- Learn about tools and strategies for telling your congregation’s story online and in the press.
The workshop is sponsored by the Diocesan Communications Working Group. We welcome Jim Naughton and Rebecca Wilson, principle consultants with Canticle Communications and authors of Speaking Faithfully: Communications as Evangelism in a Noisy World. Jim and Rebecca bring many years’ experience in church and diocesan communications to our workshop. They will lead us in the messaging exercise and offer practical tips and strategies for using communications tools effectively in congregations.
Date: Saturday, October 26, 2013
Location: St. Paul’s, White River Junction
Time: 9 am-4pm (participants are expected to attend the entire day’s program)
Who should attend?
There is room for up to 20 congregational Teams! Teams of three from each congregation are invited. Because this is a strategy and message session for the whole diocese, we require that either a Warden or clergy person serving the congregation be part of the team. The person responsible for communications (newsletter, web site, Facebook page, etc.) would also be a good person to invite, or a person interested in improving the congregation’s communications. You might also consider asking a young adult or someone new to the congregation to join your team.
Cost: This workshop is supported by a grant from the Virginia Hunt Trust. There is no cost to attend.
How to Register:
Send an email or a letter to the diocesan office (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than Friday October 11th.
Let us know the following:
Church name and town
Names of team members attending and their email addresses or mailing addresses
We will then be in touch with team members directly in advance of the workshop.
