Media Relations Training for Military Family & Veteran Organizations
In a moderated panel discussion in 2010 at a conference organized by the Coalition for Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans (CIAV), Steppingstone LLC’s Ami Neiberger-Miller appeared with some of the top reporters covering military, veteran and survivor issues. Attendees learned how to build relationships with reporters, what reporters really think when you pitch a story, and what to avoid when talking with a reporter. Attendees learned how reporters put together the “big” stories that shape how society views the impact of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Two Steppingstone LLC clients were members of the CIAV. Ami Neiberger-Miller gave practical examples of stories she has worked on with national and local media on issues impacting military families and veterans.
