NAGC President Elect John Verrico is featured in our next installment of the NAGC Webinar Series, Lightning Talks with Subject Matter Experts. This installment, entitled "Get Out From Behind the Table and Meet Your Public: How to Excel in Face-to-Face Community Relations," is scheduled for Sept. 18, from 2 to 3 p.m. EDT.
Even as we engage in digital social networks like Facebook, Pintrest, Google+ and Twitter, we know that nothing provides better communication with our public than direct, face-to-face interaction. Having an exhibit at local fairs, festivals and other events provide excellent opportunities to promote government programs, explain complex issues, answer questions and put a human face on your agency. Even in times of tight government budgets, your agency can excel in this essential community relations function.
Participants in this webinar will learn how to:
• Bring creativity to government exhibits.
• Make agency information exciting and memorable.
• Engage their public.
• Use unique give-aways that won’t break the bank.
