Changes and Opportunities in the Opinion Pages

The opinion page of a newspaper gives voice to a range of viewpoints in the community.  You have the opportunity to tell your story and communicate a point of view through opinion articles.

David Plazas, Opinion Engagement Editor at The Tennessean, will share what you need to know about the opinion section, including:  
  • Coverage of hot community topics such as growth, affordability and transit
  • Why there’s a demand for “think pieces”   
  • Getting your op-ed or letter published in The Tennessean
  • Opportunities for online chats and more
  • Impact of social media on opinion journalism
  • The role of editorial board meetings
Come prepared with questions for our speaker, as we’ll provide plenty of time for Q&A.

Cultivating Relationships: Bridging Nonprofits & Latinos
Speaker: Daniela Medina, Jarrard Phillips Cate & Hancock
Data suggests that the Nashville Latino population will rapidly continue to grow in the coming years. To better reach the Latino community, nonprofit organizations must first understand that language alone does not define their ability to bridge relationships. In this presentation, Daniela Medina, MPA, will discuss relationship barriers and give insight into breaking them. Medina is an advisor at Jarrard Phillips Cate & Hancock and has previous experience with nonprofit organizations focused in the entertainment and healthcare sectors.
Light refreshments will be provided.
*Nonprofits can RSVP to by Monday, June 13.


The Nashville Chapter of Public Relations Society of America announced on December 12, 2012, the creation of the PRSA Nashville Scholarship Endowment Fund, established in testament to the chapter’s commitment to the future of public relations in Middle Tennessee.

The fund is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a charitable organization connecting generosity with need, and will be permanently endowed, ensuring the chapter’s resources will be available to support deserving students in Middle Tennessee for years to come. 

“PRSA Nashville has been privileged to provide an annual scholarship to students for more than a decade, and as the chapter continues to grow we wanted to strengthen our commitment to the next generation of communicators,” said Chapter President Todd Smith. “We are energized by the educational dreams that will be realized thanks to our endowment. This is a real milestone for public relations in Middle Tennessee.”
