DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (October 31, 2016) – A crisis communications panel discussion on the Pulse Nightclub shooting in June will be the topic of the next meeting of the Volusia/Flagler Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association on Thursday, Nov. 17, at LPGA International.
Speakers on the panel will include public information officers from Orange County Government, the Orlando Police Department and Orlando Health.
“With a focus on lessons learned from working through the experience, the luncheon will provide valuable insight into the challenges the Public Information Officers faced during this historic event,” said Cindi Lane, APR, FPRA Volusia/Flagler Chapter president. “From providing information to the public and media the night of the event to the ongoing communications that were required in the weeks following, there is much to be learned from those who were on the front lines.”
