Meet the Press

PATA's "Meet the Press" mixer on Monday, May 15, at Cassidy's was a rousing success!
Some 60 people showed up to learn about increasing the quantity and quality of press coverage in print media.

Many thanks to Cynthia Kirk for moderating this informative event, and to our distinguished panel:
Grant Butler, The Oregonian
Johanna Droubay and Byron Beck, Willamette Week
Audrey Van Buskirk and Eric Bartels, Portland Tribune
Jim Radosta, Just Out
Justin Sanders, Portland Mercury
Camela Raymond, Portland Monthly

FOR THOSE WHO ATTENDED ... We'd like to give a 'contact sheet' back to the panelists.
If you attended the event, please send the following details to PATA board member Tim Krause ( by May 26. We'll compile the list and pass it on to each journalist on the panel:
-- name of company and name of contact person
-- address, phone, fax, Web site and e-mail
-- a one-sentence description of your company

FOR THOSE WHO COULDN'T MAKE IT: Moderator Cynthia Kirk was generous enough to share two handouts, which you may also download here (thanks, Cynthia!):
-- Details on the panelists and their contact information [.doc]
-- Full media contact list for arts organizations [.xls]
