Community ambassador programs, already emergent in the public health and civic engagement fields, represent a powerful new model in journalism as well, allowing local newsrooms to create two-way conversations within communities yet unreached by traditional engagement methods.
Attend this important conversation and learn from community ambassadors why bringing people from non-journalism backgrounds is such an important investment in community trust.
This session is designed for:
- Local newsroom managers thinking about investing in a community ambassador
- Editors and journalists working on building community trust and engagement
- Anyone who values the skills people without journalism backgrounds bring to local news
