What is the difference between an article and a news release?

An article is any news story (article, video or audio) that you might find on a news site, magazine site, or other online publication. All readers are welcome to suggest an article to share on this site.

A news release is an official statement regarding a topic from your organization, formatted like a media release that you might distribute to the press or to the public. Members of the Regional Communicators Alliance are encouraged to submit news releases to this site.

Attend a Civic Dinner

At ARC Civic Dinners, metro Atlanta residents sit down together and break bread while having focused, meaningful conversations about issues that matter.

Civic Dinners are meant to be fun, and they’re designed to break down barriers. They’re also critically important. Your input will help ARC and our regional partners as we plan for the future.

Find a Conversation to Join

A chance to get involved and make a difference

Civic Dinners are simple: Six to 10 people get together for a good meal and a focused discussion about an issue that’s critical to our region’s future — issues like mobility, affordable housing, and reimagining aging to plan an inclusive future for us all. Three simple questions prompt thoughtful, personal responses. Anyone can host. Cook up a potluck meal at home, order pizza, or meet up at your favorite local dining spot. It’s up to you! The best part: Your input on these issues goes back to ARC to help us plan for the future.
