Crisis communications planning has never been more important than it is today. The proliferation of social media has the ability to turn any event into an out-of-control news cycle in the blink of an eye.

NAGC Webinar: November 3, 2017
Implementing Culturally and Linguistically Relevant Communication to Diverse Audiences
Speaker: Leslie Quiroz, Public Affairs Specialist, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health
Speaker: Kelley Elliot, Writer-Editor, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health
Communicating with diverse audiences is a huge challenge for government communicators. Leslie and Kelley will describe best practices developed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health to ensure culturally and linguistically appropriate communications to diverse audiences. Learn how the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health (National CLAS Standards) can be embedded in your communications strategies. Leslie and Kelley will also discuss the importance of delivering information in a culturally and linguistically appropriate way and explain how their agency tailors information and outreach activities for various audiences.
This presentation has been postponed due to an unanticipated, last-minute scheduling conflict.
We will set a new date as soon as possible. In the meantime, we apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

NAGC Encore!: Friday, October 6, 2017, 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern
Uprising: A City Divided
Speaker: Mark Basnight, Senior Public Affairs Training Specialist, Argonne National Laboratory, Public Affairs Academy
In the wake of an officer involved shooting, the city of Charlotte (N.C.) was thrust into the national spotlight after the unexpected and unanticipated uprise of civil unrest. The dramatic events of Sept. 20 – 24 left one dead, several injured, hundreds of thousands of dollars in property damage, and a city divided until the release of information exposing the facts and truth of the police investigation were reluctantly released. Mark will tell us the lessons learned from this extraordinary situation that might be critical to other government communicators in the future.
