SMU CCPA students were awed at the wealth of experience and practical know-how Pat Porter managed to squeeze into a one-hour class last week. Porter, the Executive Director of Dallas Business Committee for the Arts (DBCA), discussed non-profit communications, business arts advocacy and cause-related marketing. She told students to watch trends in social venture partnerships, improved methods in research and documented outcomes, globalization, technology, strategic alliances and how non-profits are realigning to meet the changing demands in communication.
Thanks again, Pat. It's the first time I've heard students say they wish the class could have been longer.
