2016 Annual Conference

Effective Strategies with Communicating a Crisis 

Description: In county government we never know when the next unexpected media storm will surface due to elements often out of our control such as natural disasters and crisis situations. Social media also brings a new layer to the mix. Come learn about effective strategies for helping manage media storms during a crisis. 

2015 Annual Conference

Drop the Jargon: Plain Language Writing

Description: The Plain Writing Act of 2010 spurred a renewed focus on effective government communications.
