Each year, NACIO partners with the National Association of Counties to present insightful workshops at NACo’s two primary meetings, the summer Annual Conference and the spring Legislative Conference. In addition, look for announcements in the spring to learn about deadlines for the annual Awards of Excellence program.

2019 Annual Conference in Las Vegas!


Saturday, July 13, 2019
8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Professional Development Workshop

Dr. Jacque Lambiase from Texas Christian University. Her program, titled Crisis and Renewal Communication: How county leaders can be forward-looking, hopeful, and resilient, uses a case study about Hurricane Harvey as a starting point for discussion focusing on the ways county communicators and other leaders can use a coordinated response to show resiliency and hope when crisis strikes. What does a discourse of renewal sound like, and how might it serve as a framework for messages and responses during any type of crisis? This interactive workshop will introduce some of the strategies and tactics used by organizations for both internal and external stakeholders, when the going gets tough.
