  x   Fifth Summit of the Americas  
         

The Summits of the Americas periodically bring together the presidents and prime ministers of 34 countries in the region. I've provided media relations support at four of these events, the first three as a senior public information specialist for the OAS and in 2009 as a consultant to the host government of Trinidad and Tobago. My role at such events has included developing media contacts, pitching story ideas, setting up interviews, informally briefing journalists, drafting op-ed pieces, and writing press releases. I've provided similar services at regional conferences, ministerial meetings, and OAS electoral observation missions.
