Last June, PRSA presented the Air Force with the “Best of Silver Anvil Award” for its program to facilitate media coverage of flag-draped coffins bearing the remains of U.S. service personnel arriving at Dover Air Force Base.
During the PRSA International Conference in Washington, D.C., Christy Nolta, deputy director, U.S. Air Force Public Affairs, took time to speak with “On the Record…Online,” about the award-winning campaign, ”A Solemn View: Public Affairs Provides a Window to American Service Members’ Ultimate Sacrifice.” She discusses the media relations program the Air Force developed to facilitate coverage that was consistent with the wishes of each family. Nolta also presented a Conference session titled, “The Dignified Transfer of Fallen Heroes: Implementing the New Policy of Transparency.”
“On the Record…Online” is the official podcast of the PRSA 2010 International Conference, and is hosted by Eric Schwartzman, provider of online communication training, strategy and social media governance to public relations, public affairs, corporate communications and marketing specialists. Schwartzman is the instructor behind PRSA’s top-rated social media and emerging treads training seminars, the “Social Media Boot Camp” and the “Social Media Master Class,” offered monthly in the United States.
His book "Social Marketing to the Business Customer" with Paul Gillin about B2B applications of social media communications is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Borders.
