National Association of Government Communicators offers crisis communications presentation

Join NAGC this Friday October 6th for Encore!

Uprising: A City Divided With Mark Basnight Senior Public Affairs Training Specialist, National Public Affairs Academy, Argonne National Laboratory

In crisis communications, you can’t know what’s coming. But you can look ahead to prepare for the unexpected. And you can look back to learn from what others have been through. At our next Encore! presentation, emergency management communications expert Mark Basnight will walk us through Charlotte, North Carolina’s public response to the riots that broke out just a year ago following the officer-involved death of a local man.

Why was the situation extraordinary?

How did two different narratives emerge?

When did officials begin to respond?

What did Charlotte learn from the division among its citizens?

Mr. Basnight’s session was standing room only at the June Communications School. This is your chance to hear his riveting story and why the lessons learned in Charlotte will be critical to other government communicators in the future.
