NAGC Communicator of the Year

Do you know someone who deserves to be recognized as Communicator of the Year?

Government agencies communicate thousands of messages every day. It takes a unique set of skills to be a government communicator, and it takes commitment and mastery of those skills to be the best.

Each year, the National Association of Government Communicators recognizes a single government communicator who has helped instill public trust by effectively presenting accurate, timely and meaningful information, sometimes under exceptional circumstances.

Communicator of the Year is the only award in the nation that recognizes the top communicator from local, state, tribal, or federal government.

We know you know someone who’s particularly great at informing citizens, managing media, and making sure the good work of government is communicated to the public. Nominate her or him for the prestigious Communicator of the Year award.

The 2019 NAGC Communicator of the Year will be honored at the 2019 Communications School, June 25 -27, in Washington DC.
