NAGC hosted more than three-dozen fantastic presenters at our 2017 Communications School. Six of them are coming back for encore performances of their top-rated sessions.
Each year, NAGC awards a government communicator who has helped instill public trust by effectively presenting accurate, timely and meaningful information, sometimes under exceptional circumstances.
