On April 11, Megan Huber, Joe May, Elliott Postlewait, and Jim Sedor from State and Federal Communications, Inc. attended the 2014 YouToo Social Media Conference at Kent State University. The event was co-hosted by the Akron Area Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and the Kent State Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA).
State and Federal Communications was proud to be a sponsor of this great conference.
YouToo never fails to be an extraordinary place to learn about best practices and latest strategies in social media communications. Some of the top moments included the opening plenary with Andrea Weckerle, keynote speaker Danny Brown, and a lively panel with Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver and Cleveland City Councilperson Joe Cimperman.
You can see the lineup of speakers on the event page. I would highly recommend keeping a watchful eye on YouToo’s YouTube channel for videos from the 2014 conference!
Thank you, Akron Area PRSA and Kent PRSSA. We had a wonderful time.

Elizabeth Bartz, president and CEO of State and Federal Communications, spoke today at a luncheon hosted by the Akron Area Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America. The event was held at The Tangier in Akron. The title of her talk was, “Is Good Government Possible In This Environment?”
In light of the latest political scandals, Bartz covered a wide range of topics such as the dynamic between politics and journalism, the realm of political communications in the age of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, and even local politics.
Is good government possible? Bartz insisted that it is and challenged the audience to think about the importance of the simple but very powerful act of voting.

Fox 8 Representative Speaks at Local Public Relations Event
State and Federal Communications attends public relations program in Akron
Social media is constantly changing the way people communicate and receive information in today’s society. Through an organization of public relations professionals, the managing editor of Fox 8 spoke at a local event about news coverage in the Akron area.
The Public Relations Society of America hosted a luncheon at the Martin University Center to discuss the launching of a new Fox 8 bureau on the Akron University campus. Managing editor Toni Garbo addressed the audience about local news coverage involving social media and new technology.
Social Media Coordinator Joe May of State and Federal Communications, along with the company interns, attended the event to better understand the importance of accurate news coverage and communication. Garbo addressed topics including the significance of informative press release headlines and the value of objectivity in the field of journalism, especially now that Fox 8 is inaugurating a bureau on the university campus.
Garbo allowed the audience to ask questions during her presentation, and the interns had a chance to hear different perspectives and learn how Fox 8 will provide new opportunities for communications students at the University of Akron.
By attending local events, the interns at State and Federal Communications are learning the importance of social networking and becoming involved with issues in the Akron community.
