South Sound Group Program: 2015 US Open - Case Study

June 8, 2017

The 2015 US Open took place at Chambers Bay in University Place, Washington. Hunter George was the Director of Communications for Pierce County at the time and will discuss the strategy and tactics of the media effort for the Open. Hunter will be joined by the current Director of Communications for Pierce County, Libby Catalinich, who will discuss the outcomes of the Open as well as the after effects felt by the Chambers Bay Golf Course.
