With the community housing sector facing unprecedented levels of public and media scrutiny as a result of its engagement in the Big Housing Build, CHIA Vic is offering members a two-part media training program hosted by highly-respected communications specialist Mary Clark.  

This training will be tailored for the community housing sector and specifically the Big Housing Build.  


PART 1 – The Preparation 


The course includes: 

  • An overview of the media cycle, media trigger points, and media management techniques 
  • Advice on how to prepare and engage successfully with the media 
  • How to evaluate your media engagement 
  • Q & A session
  • Handouts 

The training is fundamental for spokespeople who are directly exposed to mainstream media. It is also suitable for anyone involved in key message/media strategy decision-making – design and delivery – within your organisation. It is relevant for people with no past media training or media experience but also provides a useful refresher for people who have may have had previous media training, particularly as the content is tailored to the community housing sector in Victoria.
