Career Information Professionals Communications Workshop

Posted on

Would you know what to say if you were being interviewed by the media about a recent library event? How would you answer a reporter’s questions and portray the best possible image for yourself and your library?

Find out at the next Rochester Early Career Information Professionals meeting on Tuesday, February 24th at 7:30 pm. Megan Mack, Communications Project Manager at the University of Rochester River Campus Libraries, will lead us through a workshop on talking to TV, radio, and print reporters. We will cover how to answer reporters’ questions, craft an effective message, and maintain control of the interview. We will also work on improving our delivery and being comfortable on air. Wear comfortable shoes because we will play some improvisation games to boost our confidence.

The meeting will take place at the Rush Rhees Library’s Gamble Room at the University of Rochester, located on the library’s 3rd floor. For directions to the Rush Rhees Library’s Gamble Room, please see below.

Megan Mack has served as Communications Project Manager at the River Campus Libraries since January 2014. She has experience in television sports, entertainment, and news, and has been a producer at News 10NBC (WHEC) since 2008. She is a graduate of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and the improvisation Conservatory at the Second City Training Centre in Toronto.
