There’s still space available to sign up for the National Press Club Journalism Institute’s on-camera media training workshop for public relations professionals.

The training, led by veteran multimedia journalist and Emmy Award-winning Club member Andrea McCarren, will be held on Friday, Dec. 1, from 9 – 11 a.m. in the Bloomberg Room.

The hands-on workshop is for public relations professionals who want to improve their own or their clients' presentation skills on-camera and online. The session costs $75 for Club members and $150 for non-members. Ticket can be purchased online.

McCarren’s two-hour boot camp will cover best practices for pitching stories to journalists and how to follow up, using social media to promote your clients, how to appear on camera, and tips for making your client a sought-after interview.
