Meet the Presenters: Elaine Buckley
Considered one of the top trainers in the print industry, Elaine Buckley is on the agenda for the Community Papers of Florida annual conference September 28-29.

Buckley recently relocated to Florida to serve as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Ocean Media Solutions, publishers of My Living Magazines on the Treasure Coast, where they are currently experiencing more than 25% revenue growth. As a new Florida resident, she plans to be more active with CPF.

A 39-year community papers sales veteran, she previously served with Harte-Hanks in Southern California as the Vice President of Territory Sales. She was responsible for seven sales managers and over 100 outside sales reps in a footprint of approximately nine million circulation.

Buckley is considered one of the top sales trainers in the free paper industry, providing training seminars for the Association of Free Community Papers (AFCP). She is a long-time instructor for AFCP's The Leadership Institute (TLI).

She has collected material from her senior sales reps, added material from her own experiences over the years, and put together a comprehensive, classroom style sales training program for new trainees.

Buckley has served on the AFCP board of directors and on its board membership committee. For her service to AFCP, she was the recipient of the annual Distinguished Service Award in 2015.

Buckley is one of ten siblings, giving rise to her strong competitive spirit. This spirit carries over to one of her pastimes, playing poker. She has entered and won poker competitions in casinos.

Her greatest joy is watching her grandson, Zackary, race cars.
