Naomi Bays of TSG Consulting will make a presentation on how to promote your events and activities through social media, TV, radio and newspapers.
Perhaps most importantly there will be time to meet and discuss your planned activities for the next open enrollment period with other enrollment assisters in region. One of the findings of the ten regional debriefing meetings held throughout the state this spring and summer was that frequently people didnít personally know who was also involved in enrollment in their county or in surrounding counties.
