We are delighted that Marta Mossburg will be sharing her expertise with us on January 8th. She is a sought-after speaker and an expert on the media. We expect Mrs. Mossburg will give conservative activists much-needed advice on how to reach the often challenging (to say the least!) mainstream media* in all its varied forms.

She is a 2010 recipient of the Daily Record Leading Women In Maryland Award.
