Announcing the 2015 FCN Leadership Team and This Year’s First Free Training (where you can meet the team!)

By: Lisa Chesnel, writer/editor, Peace Corps Office of Inspector General

Hey folks. In December you elected me to the FCN leadership team! I wanted to thank you and let you know that I’m the new blogger for the team and I’d love your input–please contact me if you’d like to be a guest blogger! FCN posts are 500 words or less, on non-commercial topics of broad interest.

I also wanted to take the opportunity to let you know who else was elected and what role they’ve taken on:

  • Cori Bassett (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and Deb Harris (Defense Finance and Accounting Services), co-chairs 
  • Suki Baz (National Park Service), secretary/administration coordinator 
  • Latasha Blackmond (Citizenship and Immigration Services), social media coordinator 
  • Lisa Chesnel (Peace Corps), blogger 
  • Britt Ehrhardt (National Institutes of Health), membership development coordinator 
  • Aubrey McMahan (U.S. Geological Survey), training/workshop coordinator 
  • Bernetta Reese (Department of Agriculture), events and outreach coordinator 

We all hope to see you at the event below--

Social Media: What’s the right strategy for your agency?

Please join the Partnership for Public Service and FCN at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, February 19 for a conversation on finding the right social media strategy for your agency.


From Twitter and Facebook to Instagram and Tumblr, there are a wide-variety of social media tools available to help agencies communicate their missions and make their content more accessible. However, developing the right digital strategy for your organization is key. Hear from a panel of agency communicators who have launched and led successful social media efforts on how they chose their agencies’ online platforms, how they are using these tools and why developing a social media strategy for their agency was the right move.
