Telling stories is at the heart of a communicator’s work. The 2018 Minnesota Association of Government Communicators Fall Conference will cover the different ways to connect with audiences through effective storytelling. You will learn the latest social media trends, discover how to stay on point during a crisis, and hear how others are using stories to convey their organizations’ messages. And, for the first time at the Fall Conference, the afternoon will feature concurrent technical and creative sessions, and a cash bar reception afterward to network with your peers.
