"Advancing Federal Communications" research paper released - call for volunteers

On Tuesday 9/13/16 at 8:30am EST, the FCN Professional Standards Working Group will present findings on the research paper "Advancing Federal Government Communications". You are invited to attend this discussion!


Today, August 2, 2016, the Federal Communicators Network (FCN) officially released "Advancing Federal Communications," a research paper that makes the case for clear and consistent quality standards for U.S. federal government communication.

The result of a grassroots, volunteer study among an interagency group of government communicators, the paper incorporates extensive primary and secondary research and includes a set of concrete recommendations for improvement.

In keeping with the FCN's guiding spirit of independent self-help at no cost to the public, the group has formed a Professional Standards Working Group to initiate standards development, governance, and outreach related to the goal of developing the "common core" of expectations that federal communicators need.

Due to the complex nature of this undertaking and the distribution of minimal time commitments among volunteers, FCN anticipates this process unfolding over a period of years. To move it forward, a small standards development project in the area of personal use of social media is now underway.

FCN welcomes all volunteers eligible to participate. If you are a federal employee or contractor with a dot-gov or dot-mil email address and wish to participate, contact fedcommnetwork@gmail.com. There is never any fee to participate.
