Government/K-12 Virtual Roundtable:
"Build Your Communications Toolkit for Everyday Use"
Thursday, November 15, 2018



Open to Government/K-12 End-Users and Others Who Are Interested

There’s more to communication than just email! Join us to discuss how a bit of planning, using a variety of communication channels, and understanding individual needs can move your cardholders toward compliance and make your job much easier.

Our three facilitators will lead a dynamic conversation including:       

·         ways to refresh (or kick off!) your newsletter program

·         strategic use of internal intranet systems

·         taking advantage of templates and time savers

·         ensuring immediate messaging when necessary

·         respecting your cardholders’ individual needs 


Come prepared to share your experiences, tips and great ideas, and leave with an action plan to get your message out, position yourself as a trusted resource for your cardholders and save yourself some time.


PLEASE NOTEThe registration form will ask if you wish to be a panelist or in listen-only mode. You should choose "panelist" if you wish to participate during the discussion. The event will allow up to 24 panelists.
