    We have several opportunities available to be more involved in NACIO! The NACIO Board of Directors comprises local government communicators who are dedicated to promoting the value of professional PIOs and communicators to county governments. Our board members champion the importance of exceptional board leadership and believe that every organization needs a strong and effective board to fully realize its potential for good. In addition to the standard roles and responsibilities of a board member, our board members are active advocates and ambassadors for the organization and are fully engaged in identifying and securing the financial resources and partnerships necessary for NACIO to advance its mission.

    Current open positions include:

    • Region 2 Director- Regional Directors are appointed by the President and serve as a representative of and liaison to the NACIO members in their area. Region 2 Area includes: Alabama, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia. 
    • Region 3 Director - Regional Directors are appointed by the President and serve as a representative of and liaison to the NACIO members in their area. Region 3 Area includes: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wyoming

    Think about it. And, if you think a position on the Board is right for you, please reach out to Rebecca Carter to express your interest.

    The NACo Board voted March 19 to relocate the 2021 NACo Annual Conference to Prince George’s County, Md., revising the dates to July 9-12, just outside of Washington, D.C. The conference would be a hybrid of in-person and remote programming. The Board also passed 27 interim policy resolutions (see details on pages 9-13) that will help guide NACo’s advocacy through July’s Annual Business Meeting. Additional information will be forthcoming.

    Julie Chávez Rodriguez, White House Director of Intergovernmental Affairs, spoke to the Board ahead of President Joe Biden’s planned March 24 appearance. As president-elect, Biden spoke during the Fall Board Meeting, too.

    Rodriguez said Treasury Department guidance for the American Rescue Plan’s $65.1 billion in direct funding to counties was coming soon and thanked counties for their work championing the bill.

    “We want to hear from you all, what are important things for the Treasury Department to keep in mind as we think about flexibilities around state and local funding,” she said.  “What are the kinds of issues you are facing and the kinds of critical needs that you have that should be informing the next steps of our implementation?”

    Though county officials were not able to make the trip to Washington, D.C. for the Legislative Conference, they’ll be roughly a mile away during the Annual Conference.

    “We are proud to welcome and host the National Association of Counties to Prince George’s County, Md.,” said Leslie W. Graves, president and CEO of Experience Prince George’s.

    “It is a pivotal time to come together through leadership, empowerment and great purpose. Throughout your visit, we encourage you to experience and enjoy the many unique amenities of our destination.”

    Interest in an in-person conference began to grow as the country gets on track to vaccinate all adults by the end of May. The close proximity of Prince George’s County to NACo’s office in Washington, D.C. also played a role in the decision, as it is easier to plan and execute the conference without air travel in a short preparation time of three months. The location is also suitable for bringing any federal officials to the conference to discuss federal COVID aid implementation and rulemaking.

    NACo will offer a hybrid experience for both in-person and virtual participation, including for the Annual Business Meeting and second vice president election.

    NACo will comply with any state or county public health measures.

    NACo will reimagine the conference agenda and format to reduce the overall number of sessions and to maximize the use of the convention space for social distancing, COVID screening/testing and live streaming. A safe experience for members to the maximum extent possible will be ensured by including experienced conference organizers in the execution of the event.

    The Annual Conference was originally scheduled to take place in Travis County (Austin), Texas, which will now play host to the 2023 conference. Chatham County (Savannah) Ga. will play host to the 2027 conference.

    The NACIO Awards of Excellence competition may have been derailed this last year due to COVID-19, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to celebrate the great work county communicators do for their residents.

    To provide an opportunity to highlight the work that has been done over the past year and the work done in 2019, we are going to hold awards competitions for BOTH years at the same time! So, dust off your 2019 submissions and get them ready, we’re looking forward to seeing everything you’ve been working on for the past TWO years.

    Here’s how it will work:

    • There will be TWO competitions simultaneously – one for 2019 and one for 2020.
    • Both competitions will follow the same timeline for the awards process.
    • Winners will be selected in each category for each year.
    • There will be two (probably virtual) awards ceremonies.

    The categories will remain the same:

    • Annual Report
    • Brochures (one page; multipage booklet)
    • Publications (internal; external)
    • Writing (news writing; feature writing or columns; news releases; speeches)
    • Graphic Design (logos, themes and letterheads; graphics for brochures and publications; special graphics)
    • Photography
    • Audio Visual Production (one-time visual programming; video series; podcasts or audio programming)
    • Special Projects (ceremonies or community events; public education campaign)
    • Electronic Communications (websites; best Facebook page; best Twitter feed; email newsletter to citizens)

    That said, we need you – our members – to help shape the event. We’ve all had to adjust how we work, day-in and day-out, and have different lessons learned that can will be vital in building an event that is streamlined, user-friendly and flexible (easily moved to an online component, just in case).

    Two awards competitions mean twice the preparation, judging, etc. and we could use some help! If you are interested in getting involved in NACIO helping with awards is a great way to learn more about our organization and get some great ideas for future projects – imitation is the sincerest form of flattery after all!

    If you are interested in participating on this committee, please send an email to nacio1966@gmail.com.

    Hello everyone,

    Please take time to read through this month’s newsletter. There are lots of upcoming events in which you can participate, as well as a recap and recording of the March 4 webinar on COVID-19 Vaccine Communication Strategies. Thank you again to our panel and everyone who joined.

    We are planning another webinar that will focus on a very timely topic suggested by our members, The Digital Divide and Digital Inclusion. Most local governments are implementing efforts to help them better reach aging populations, especially during a time when there is an emphasis on digital communication. Those efforts also seek to address the ongoing issue of access to technology for all socioeconomic groups.

    We're looking for County Information Officers willing to share their organization's strategy on closing the digital divide during the next webinar. If you would like to serve on the panel, or if you know someone who would be a great addition,  please send me an email and let me know.

    The Board is also continuing to work on the list of housekeeping items I shared last month:

    • We’re transitioning our bank account from a regional, East Coast bank, SunTrust, to a national bank, Wells Fargo, for easier accessibility.
    • We’re also working to get NACIO back in good standing as a recognized 501c(6) organization.
    • We’re working to create a more formal budget document to share with the membership.
    • We’re getting the awards platform set up to host two, simultaneous awards contests for projects completed in 2019 and 2020.
    • We’re also trying to continue to host regular virtual events and provide you an opportunity to connect, share and learn with your colleagues. More information on our next event is below.

    If you have a minute to help us out with a project, have a webinar topic in mind, or are willing to serve in a long-term capacity, we would love to have you. Please send me an email if you are interested in getting more involved.

    As always, thank you for your continued support of NACIO.

    Thanks,

    Rebecca Carter
    Mecklenburg County

    President's Letter

    Hello members!

    Despite the pandemic, it seems (at least for me) that things are already gearing up for Fall! It continues to amaze me how quickly we have all adapted, for better or worse, to this new normal. Instead of our usual line-up of Fall events, our Park and Rec staff are planning virtual events, we have more marketing campaigns than I can count and we’re constantly launching new platforms/apps to better serve our residents during this time. And all of this is amidst the constant communication about COVID-19.

    I was talking on the phone with a coworker earlier this week about a project we’re coordinating, and our conversation quickly turned to catching up with each other. Since working exclusively from home since March, that is one of the things I miss the most – just turning around in my cubicle pod to ask my colleagues a question, brainstorming ideas and collaborating on projects and just taking a moment to check-in with them personally. 

    Now we have our “check-ins” with each other by staying on our Microsoft Teams meetings a few minutes after the meeting is over or by text message. We even had an after-work Facetime cocktail hour to celebrate all of our August birthdays a couple of weeks ago!

    But I don’t just miss my coworkers, I miss YOU, my communications colleagues. I know you’re still there if I need you, but I miss seeing you in person, sharing your energy and insight and the unspoken understanding of what it’s like to be a local government communicator. Let’s do something about it!

    A few of our members presented the idea of a virtual networking and catch-up with colleagues session! Our first NACIO virtual meet-up is September 24 at 3:30pm EST – click here to register, its (FREE)! Bring your questions, your “help me please” topics, and anything else you can think of. I can’t wait to SEE and hear from all of you soon!

    Hang in there,

    Rebecca Carter

    Member Profile: Heather Shirm

    Manager, Digital Marketing and Communications

    Palm Beach County

    Heather Shirm is the 2020 recipient of the NACIO scholarship to the Certified Public Communicator (CPC) program at Texas Christian University. The CPC program is the only certification program in the country designed specifically for communications professionals working for public sector agencies.

    Heather has been with the Palm Beach County for 14 years in communications, starting as a web design coordinator. She was promoted in April 2011 to her current position. Heather holds a bachelor’s degree in communication and a master’s in public administration. Through the CPC program, she is working on a department-wide strategic plan that will serve as a template for other county departments within communications divisions.

    Due to COVID-19, the CPC program was adjusted from in-person classes to on-line classes. However, Heather reported that the content was very relevant for the times.

    Q: What information or topics did you find most useful during the CPC week?

    A: I really enjoyed the Leadership, Social Media Tips, and Self Care topics during the CPC week. They were very focused on how to navigate COVID communications activities while helping to avoid fatigue and burnout.

    Q: How has the CPC course helped you in your position?

    A: The CPC course has helped me to enhance my skillset as a public communicator and to create a concrete vision for my department.  The pace of change we are experiencing as a society is unprecedented, and it really helps to know I will have structured, living plan to refer to when things feel overwhelming or change course completely. I’m hopeful the certification will also assist me with future promotions and leadership positions in county government.

    2019 NACIO Conference Details Announced

    If you haven’t already registered for the 2019 conference in Las Vegas, please do as NACIO has some great speakers lined up for members.

    Dr. Jacque LambiaseNACIO events will kick off on Saturday, July 13, at 8:30 a.m. with our Professional Development Program featuring 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.

    The NACIO Board Meeting will follow Dr. Lambiase’s program from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. And we will wrap up Saturday’s activities with our 2019 Awards of Excellence Reception to be held at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant at the Paris Hotel starting at 5:00 p.m.

    Learning and networking continue on Sunday July 14 with Making Your Mark with a County Brand from 9:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. And be sure to stop by our NACIO table near the exhibition hall on Sunday to pick up some NACIO swag.

    The final communications session will be Monday July 15 at 8:00 a.m. with Telling Your County’s Story When the Media Can’t or Won’t.

    We can’t wait to meet up with everyone at the conference!
