Hugging the Cactus: Wrapping Your Arms Around the Media

webinar graphic

NCSL Webinars allow attendees to participate in meetings taking place around the world from the comfort of their desk. They are collaborative, interactive and easy to use.

Most webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to attend the live meeting.

Though there are fewer reporters covering capitols today, they still need comment and reaction to breaking news. If you’d rather hug a cactus than talk to a reporter, then this Webinar is for you. Hear the reasons why you should work with the media and how you can make your next encounter less prickly
