The NAGC Communications School is the only event of its kind that provides invaluable networking opportunities and practical educational sessions to help government communicators increase their skills. Federal, state and local government communicators and contractors gather to network and attend educational sessions.




Every year, the NAGC Board of Directors presents the prestigious Communicator of the Year Award to an exceptional public servant for their outstanding work in the field of government communications. With this initiative, NAGC aims to recognize professional excellence while inspiring and engaging current and future government communicators regarding best practices.




NAGC rewards excellence in the field of communications with awards in more than categories in the annual Blue Pencil & Gold Screen Awards.  The NAGC Board of Directors also selects an annual “Best in Show” from the first place winners, to showcase exemplary government communication. The Communicator of the Year Award is given to an individual who has demonstrated excellence in government communications during the previous year.”
