What is Greek Media Training?
Greek Media Training (GMT) committee consists of three sub-committees, Greek Relations,
Media Relations, and Event Planning. Greek Relations develops a grass-roots campaign and
builds relationships with the Greek Community ultimately building event attendance. This
sub-committee is also in charge of other marketing efforts for the event. Media
Relations coordinates the media campaign for this event, contacting journalists and
writing press releases. Media Relations also creates and updates the event binder given
to each participant. Event Planning organizes the logistics for putting on this event.
Fundraising efforts are directed out of Event Planning.
This event gives PRSSA students real-world experience in many aspects of public relations
