March 10 Agenda

10:00 am  – Noon
Communications and Marketing for Clinics 
Learn how to effectively present your messages to the media and public. Joel Kessel is a communications advisor with a specialization in working with media. He helps organizations and those who have something to say—nonprofit organizations, authors, speakers, thought leaders—gain clarity and confidence on how to strategically and authentically communicate and deliver their message through the media—reporters, podcasters, bloggers, influencers—so they can have a larger impact on the people they serve. 

12:15 pm  – 1:00 pm
Lunch & Networking
Reconnect and get to know fellow OAFC members during lunch in the conference center dining room. Nationwide Conference Center features a delicious daily buffet that has lots of options to fit every taste and dietary need.

1:00 – 2:15 pm
Taking Action
We continue our time with Joel Kessel as we take what we learned in the morning session and create actionable goals we can apply to our work in the next 30 days and beyond.

2:15 – 2:30 pm
Refuel and gear up for the final session of the afternoon.

2:30 – 3:00 pm
