F4CP and COCSA Partner to Launch 'PR 101 Crisis Communications Kit'

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ – October 25, 2016 – The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP), the voice of the chiropractic profession, is pleased to announce that it is teaming up with Congress of Chiropractic State Associations (COCSA) to launch a ‘PR 101 Crisis Communications Kit.’ Set to launch on Tuesday, October 25th, 2016, the kit offers State Associations effective guidelines for managing crises - from negative publicity and attacks on the profession to the misrepresentation of information regarding the safety of chiropractic care.

This crisis communications kit represents the input and guidance of crisis management professionals who counsel companies and individuals nationwide in preparing for events and responding effectively,” says Sherry McAllister, DC, executive vice president, F4CP. “The guide will help State Associations to mitigate the potential for damage or avoid serious negative repercussions.”

Key objectives of the PR 101 Crisis Communications Kit are as follows:

  • Prepare State Associations to effectively and nimbly manage crisis communications

  • Help employees respond in a unified, professional manner that reinforces sector leadership and creates loyalty

  • Strategically enhance the brand/role of State Associations and advance professional and public understanding of its value

  • Manage the distribution of critical, often sensitive, information to the media, members, and public

  • Inform employees of the State Association’s position to help shape a consistent sector-wide response

Amy Hardin, executive director, COCSA continues, “Not only is this kit filled with a multitude of suggested ‘how-to’ directives, but it also includes a list of credible experts who State Associations can contact for sound advice and references. The goal is to position State Associations as reliable and trusted resources that provide positive and factual information to the public about the chiropractic profession.”
