Member Event | Family 2 Family Nonprofit Media Summit

Join GCN and the WSB-TV Family 2 Family project for a special forum about promoting your nonprofit's work and impact through television, radio, print and digital media. What makes this day-long Summit unique are the presenters; a panel of media veterans, the very people you pitch on a daily basis.

FIRST… Our Media Consultant Andrew Finlayson 
turns your smart phone into a social media movie machine!


Andrew Finlayson is Executive Vice President of Digital and Social Media Strategies for SmithGeiger, the company that has consulted and conducted research for companies including Google, ABC, BBC and Cox Media Group, and broadcast programs like Jimmy Kimmel LIVE. Mr. Finlayson helps media and technology companies find the most valuable audiences for their content. He'll share his experience of how to create inexpensive videos for your social media platforms to create awareness, attention and action and then have you try it on the spot!


THEN… How healthy is your website?  

Our Integrated Digital Media executives will answer that question and give you the tools to evaluate your website and increase visibility in the market. 


AND… Your favorites are back!

We’re bringing back our panel of media veterans from Channel 2 WSB-TV, Cox Radio Atlanta, and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution to guide you through best practices for getting your stories seen and heard on multiple platforms.

We’ll have a working lunch with information on everything from how to write a news release to things that drive assignment editors crazy.

We’ll end the afternoon with something to think and laugh about “Missed Opportunities” both, in front of the camera and behind the scenes. 

The Family 2 Family Nonprofit Media Forum is a partnership of the Georgia Center for Nonprofits and Channel 2 WSB-TV with the support of the Family 2 Family partners; American Signature Furniture, The Kroger Company, Northside Hospital, SCANA Energy and Southwest Airlines.
