Discover Effective Constituent Communications at #MACoCon

Now more than ever, communication is key, and it is important to keep constituents informed and engaged with your message.

At MACo’s Winter Conference, communications experts who use a variety of approaches will offer their insight on how to effectively navigate building successful strategies for constituent communication. Speakers will discuss both the right and wrong ways of using social media and other tools to make sure your message is both heard and understood.

Amplifying Your Message – Effective Constituent Communications

The right communication strategies can build a bridge between government officials and the public they serve. The wrong strategies can find you treading in dangerous waters. Officials must find the right methods for engaging with constituents to foster trust, support, and understanding. In this digital age, social media is just one increasingly powerful tool that – when done correctly – can be a fast and effective way to deliver messages and learn about your community’s needs. Attend this session to learn how to effectively navigate modern communication channels and steer clear of perilous pitfalls.
