In today’s fast-paced world where everyone is connected 24/7, how do regulatory bodies keep up? This one-day seminar will explore the regulator’s relationship with social and traditional media. Should a board communicate with licensees and the public via Facebook, Twitter or other social media? Does the public now expect it? What are the advantages and the risks? Beyond its use as a communication tool, how can social media be used in investigations? What are the expectations and implications for privacy and confidentiality? Turning to what is now known as traditional media, how can regulators best work with the media to get the message out in the interest of public protection? What information does the public have a right to know?
Through a panel of speakers, combined with open forum discussion, the seminar content will reflect on creating a positive and beneficial relationship between regulatory bodies and the media, both social and traditional. The seminar will be of particular interest to regulatory administrators, board and council members, and enforcement and investigative staff.
