This National Press Club Communicators Summit is your chance to learn how journalists and fellow communicators are using social media to their advantage.

The Summit will cover:
Communicating With Journalists Via Social Media - How to Stand Out: Is outreach through social media a boom or a bust? How are journalists using social media to nurture source relationships and develop story ideas? Which platforms are most credible: Facebook? Twitter? Foursquare? LinkedIn?
