Agenda 6 june 10

  1. 1. WHA IRC Directors Workshop U.S. Embassy – Quito, Ecuador June 7-11, 2010 This workshop provides a forum for IRC Directors to meet and examine the role of IRCs in carrying out WHA public diplomacy goals and develop a customized IRC marketing plan that puts these goals into action. The first two days will focus on WHA and IRC goals and initiatives, including social media, collection development, IRC best practices, OpenNet resources and databases, and a visit to the American Corner at the Centro Cultural Metropolitano in Quito. For the remaining three days, you will build a practical marketing plan for Mission and external audiences that addresses public diplomacy goals as it blends appropriate application of social and interactive media with proven public diplomacy methods and tools. U.S. library public relations and marketing consultant Peggy Barber will guide participants through the process of designing a positioning statement and key message, identifying key audiences, strategies and tools, and measures used for evaluation. Secretary Clinton will be visiting Quito on Tuesday afternoon, June 8. We might be able to attend her speech at the Centro Cultural Metropolitano (the same place as the American Corner), but we probably won’t know until the last minute. Thanks in advance for your flexibility as we manage potential changes in this schedule. All sessions will be held in the Chimborazo Room at the U.S. Embassy in Quito.
