Wayfind is pleased to announce a complimentary webinar for nonprofit organizations, Strategic Legal Thinking Seminar – Sending the Right Message: Legal Considerations for Media & Communications, offered by Pfizer and Exponentum® on October 31, 2019 from 9:30a.m. to 1:00 p.m. PST.  The webinar will discuss a variety of legal and practical issues related to nonprofits’ media and communications strategies.  Please see the attached flyer for a detailed description and register online before October 23, 2019.  Thank you! Wayfind is pleased to be part of Exponentum®.

In an increasingly crowded nonprofit sector, many organizations seek to differentiate themselves and reach existing and potential donors and clients through communications efforts, utilizing both traditional media and social media. In addition to crafting messages and choosing the medium, there are legal issues to be considered when planning communications activities. This seminar will review these legal questions.

Topics will include legal issues concerning the use of photographs and videos, including copyright, fair use, and privacy, especially relating to children. The seminar will also cover legal issues for nonprofit websites and social media, such as fundraising, lobbying and advocacy, employment, and creating a social media policy. The presentation will cover the legal issues in crisis communications such as negative posts and preserving data security.
