As county leaders, we often find ourselves in the news. While most large counties have dedicated communications teams to handle media relations, many smaller counties have only one person responsible for speaking to the media on top of other duties. In this session you will hear from National Association of County Information Officers (NACIO) board members on effective strategies and tactics for working with your local media. After the workshop, they will stay to answer questions. In addition, NACIO members offer professional communication advice and consult throughout the year.
