2024 MDARD Calling All PIOs - March 6th - Gaylord

Being a public information officer or department spokesperson isn’t something one can get a college degree for.

Whether you’re a pedigreed former journalist or simply the person in your department who was tapped to be the PIO in addition to a list of other duties, we can help you sharpen your tools to more effectively tell your department story and create a more responsive, professional, effective communications operation – at any scale.

Please register by Friday, February 23rd.
