Using Leadership Connect: Find sources with smart database searches

Part of a workshop series to introduce journalists and communicators to databases and resources available in the National Press Club.

About the Event

It’s all about who you know, and potential sources for your stories are everywhere. Stay up to date with Leadership Connect, a database designed to find correct contact information for people and organizations.

Whether you are trying to find the policy director for a member of Congress, board members for a foundation, or news media contacts, you can access Leadership Connect digitally in the Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library.

Representatives from Leadership Connect will demonstrate how to use the database at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28. The information resource is available at no cost to National Press Club members and is among the various tools available to help your reporting. This training session is part of a series of workshops intended to introduce journalists and communicators to databases and resources available in the Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library.

You’ll learn how to:

  • identify leaders, committees and staffers focused on specific issues;
  • research contacts you plan to meet;
  • find the right reporter at the right outlet; and
  • identify prospects, among other features.

The training is free for NPC members and $10 for non-members.
