Accidental and Newbie Communications Directors: What You Need to Know to Be Effective Fast

Description


Are you the first communications director at your nonprofit? Or were you hired or promoted into the job, even though communications is not your primary area of experience or training?

No fear, you aren’t alone! The Communications Director title is still a relatively new one in the sector, the job is constantly evolving, and just about everyone is making it up as they go.

During this session, we’ll discuss comms strategy and planning basics, and some internal ground rules and workflows to build early, so you avoid big problems later. We’ll also talk about how to “manage from the middle” and build a culture inside your nonprofit that supports great communications with those outside the organization.
