Publicizing a chapter event

There are two major types of publicity - offline and online. Offline is done without the internet and includes print media such as newsletters, postcards, fliers. Online publicity is done through any internet-based platform and includes email marketing, websites, social media.  Social media has become one of the most common forms of publicity.
