One of the smartest things we can do in government is to learn by watching other agencies. We look at what they've done well, and see how we can apply those ideas in our own space.
Staff at GovDelivery hear a lot of great stories about governments communicating with the public. I recently met up with their team in St. Paul, Minnesota and asked them to share their favorite examples with me.
Watch the video to hear stories about government communications sent by Maricopa County, the FDA, Minnesota DNR and Yarnell, AZ. Plus, I crashed one of their meetings and included some outtakes - this is a GovGirl video, after all.
What are your favorite examples of government communication? Share in the comments!
