Front Cover
DIANE Publishing, 1989 - 156 pages
Prepared for State and local government officials, LEPCs, and other community groups that want to make Title III of the Superfund Amend. and Reauth. Act of 1986 work. It is intended as a practical guide for those who have little or no previous experience in the field of communication, and whose time and resources are limited. Discusses planning, which is vital to the success of a communication program. Suggests ways to get and keep people involved, especially important because Title III affects so many sectors of the community. A how-to-do-it section talks about specific tasks, such as giving a speech or writing a press release.
