To better serve Acadiana's nonprofits, AOC Community Media is making a new monthly service available to local 501c3 organizations. Once a month, nonprofit employees are invited to use their lunch time to first learn how to create and then submit free advertisements for their nonprofits and its events.  The class for August will be on the 10th.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., you will the basic skills needed to create effective message board advertisements and then put those skills into action as you create advertisements to run on AOC's two television channels. When you leave, you will be able to submit these ads for air, as well as take them with you to use on your social media sites, websites and publication.

All you need to bring is high-quality digital versions of your logo as well as any information or event information you'd like to highlight. High-quality images are also encouraged.

Because we had to reschedule our August 1 Nonprofit Nourishment session on Friday, August 10, we've had a couple of spots open up for this next session. If you are interested in one of these two spots, please email by Wednesday, Aug. 8 at noon. Pre-payment may be required.

RSVP asap at  Space is extremely limited, the cost is $10, and lunch will be provided.
