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.
NACIO 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!
