Public Sector Leaders Shares Best Practices in Citizen Outreach and Engagement for Federal Government

WASHINGTON, Aug. 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GovDelivery, the leading provider of cloud-based public sector communication solutions, announced that it will host a webinar on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. ET, titled, "Outreach & Engagement in Federal Government." In this complimentary webinar, government digital communication experts will share their best practices and offer new strategies that federal government organizations can implement to achieve greater citizen engagement.

"Effective citizen engagement is playing an increasingly important role in achieving mission results for public sector organizations," said Scott Burns, CEO at GovDelivery. "While presenting a better solution for engaging citizens, the digital era brings the challenges of a constantly growing and changing landscape of communication channels and tools. This webinar will provide federal government organizations with valuable digital communication strategies to help them address these challenges and remain focused on engaging more citizens, functioning more efficiently and, ultimately, driving mission success."

The upcoming webinar is another example of GovDelivery's enthusiastic support of the use of digital communications within government to improve stakeholder outreach and engagement. The company's partnerships with more than 1,000 government organizations enables GovDelivery to help other government agencies improve their communications by connecting peers and facilitating greater collaboration and knowledge sharing across the public sector. In this case, an expert panel session with government communicators from the USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (ChooseMyPlate.gov) and Corporation for National and Community Service (NationalService.gov) will present on their organizations' digital communications strategies and deliver a sampling of what's working and what's next in their communication efforts. Webinar attendees will leave with actionable communication strategies and tactics for connecting with more people, getting them to take online or offline actions, and measuring and tracking communication efforts.

The webinar will be a live chat format, so communicators should bring questions or submit them ahead of time by tweeting @GovDelivery with #GovD14.
