On the move – Gov Communication Conference Gets Pushed Back

The government shutdown has sucked up all the oxygen surrounding the federal government. It’s impossible to focus on engaging stakeholders and federal communication best practices when hundreds of thousands of feds are furloughed.

But communications best practices are essential. When agencies return to full capacity they will need to know the best ways to engage with their constituents.

That’s why GovDelivery has moved their Federal Digital Communications Event: The Power of the Message to December 9th. By moving the event to early December, everyone can attend.

“We worked hard to put this program together and bring to the table some amazing communicators, and the interest in the program definitely showed – we had more than 650 people registered before the federal government shut down! But with so many government workers being furloughed, we definitely felt that we needed to reschedule so everyone could have the chance to participate,” said Mary Yang. Yang is a Senior Communications Manager at GovDelivery.

Will I have to re-register the event?

No. We will ask you to confirm your attendance via email.

Will the schedule change?

Registration will open at 8am EDT. The agenda will feature the same great speakers and allow for ample networking. You will be out of there by noon!

Who is speaking?

Keynote speaker, bestselling author Paul Smith, has confirmed that he will be available to share his expertise around storytelling to engage stakeholders. The Education Department’s Cameron Brenchley will also be featured on a communication panel.

Where will the event be held?

Grand Hyatt in Washington, D.C.
