Feb. 24 Government Communications Day
Download your toolkit here
Help us spread the word about Government Communications Day on February 24.
Government Communications Day is a day to highlight all the good work YOU do as a public communicator.
- When your agency is working on getting rate increases approved, guess who’s working on a public outreach and education campaign – you are.
- When your agency receives an award, guess who’s preparing the media advisory, issuing the press release, and creating a highlight video – you are.
- When a news outlet is looking for a comment or responding to a crisis, guess who’s working on creating a newsworthy, strategic response and preparing talking points – you are.
- When you are trying to change behaviors or educate the community on environmental impacts, land-use changes, budget, or more, guess who is writing the communication plan – you are!
For 364 days of the year, you proudly stand behind the scenes, but let us help you shine for this one day!
