Around the Region: Upcoming Events in Richmond

by | Mar 15, 2015

A White House official will visit Richmond on March 18 to deliver the keynote address at a lunch and executive briefing on the importance of business support of drug prevention programs for youth.  David K. Mineta, Deputy Director of Demand Reduction for the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), headlines the special session on corporate social responsibility for local business leaders hosted by Spurrier Media Group (SMG) and the Mentor Foundation USA on Wednesday, March 18 from 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at SMG’s headquarters at 101 S. 15th St. SMG’s Donna Spurrier said, “We are very proud to partner with Mentor Foundation USA on an exciting initiative that brings business leaders and influencers together to raise awareness and support for effective drug prevention and positive youth development. Everyone in attendance is passionately committed to improving the lives of all people in the Richmond region, including young adults.”

The upcoming March 25th PRSA Richmond luncheon program promises to be “a fascinating and timely one”, states the PRSA chapter. “Media Training & Crisis Communication: Lessons Learned in the Field” will feature Jim Vance, media and communication specialist and spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in D.C. According to the PRSA chapter, Vance will focus on “some of the most high-visibility events of the last decade such as the Aurora, Colorado theater shootings, the Newtown tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and Hurricane Katrina. However, his ‘lessons learned’ apply to all of us in PR: correcting media mistakes and inaccuracies, conducting effective press briefings, avoiding common interview mistakes, and key steps to interview preparation.”
