2020 NAGC Communications School
After reviewing CDC guidance for event planners, considering the order issued by Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear March 18, 2020, requiring businesses that cannot comply with CDC social distancing guidelines to cease in-person operations, increasing restrictions on travel for government employees, and out of an abundance of caution in uncertain times, the board of directors has decided to cancel the 2020 Communications School.
Management HQ - our association management team - will contact those who have already registered for the 2020 Communications School to make refund arrangements.
We are pressing ahead with the judging of Blue Pencil & Gold Screen Award submissions and the board is working with Management HQ to create a virtual event to properly recognize award winners. The board is also working with the 2020 Communications School Task Force to identify breakout sessions and/or keynote presentations that would adapt well to a virtual environment and offer those as a series of webinars and/or webcast events.
Mark your calendars for NAGC's annual Communications School!
