Venue: OCAM Virtual Training

Event Summary

Nov 30, 2023
9:30 am - 11:45 am
OCAM Virtual Training

Description: Marketing your coalition is important – it can inform a community about who the coalition is, what they are doing, and how it is impacting the health of the community, which are essential components to coalition development and sustainability. Two of the most overlooked elements in marketing a coalition, yet arguably two of the most important elements of a marketing approach, are brand development and communication planning. This session looks at how to create a coalition brand that makes a statement as well as how to develop a communications plan that ultimately leads to more community awareness, readiness, and involvement. Participants will receive templates that can be used within their own community coalitions while also gaining insight into why implementing these approaches is critical to their future successes.
