Announcing this year’s theme: “NCAGIO at 50: Looking to the Future, Learning from the Past”

You are invited to attend the N.C. Association of Government Information Officers annual seminar, Thurs., Nov. 21, at the UNC Friday Center in Chapel Hill.

This year we will reflect on our organization on its 50th anniversary and look to the future of our profession and our network in a rapidly changing communications landscape. Join us to learn about using project management principles to organize your full plate; to explore cutting edge of communications to bring us together with the next generation of communications professionals; and to prepare for the impacts of our state’s population growth on our work.


See you in Chapel Hill!
