STEPHENVILLE (March 26, 2015) — For the first time, Tarleton State University’s Department of Communication Studies is offering a free seminar on being the spokesperson for your organization.

Operation Organizational Spokesperson will highlight techniques for nailing on-camera interviews, crafting sound bites and preparing for crisis communication situations.

Limited to 24 participants, the sessions will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. on Monday, April 13, in room 394 of the O.A. Grant Humanities Building. Registration is now open online at www.tinyurl.com/operationos.
