NC3C June Newsletter and Awards of Excellence Invitation Print

President's Report

Hello members!

I hope you are all doing well and continuing to stay safe.

As I mentioned last month, due to the current circumstances related to COVID-19 the Board made the difficult decision to cancel the annual conference this year. However, the awards contest is complete, the awards have been produced and we are ready to announce and honor this year’s winners!

Consider this your official invitation to the NC3C 2020 Awards of Excellence. Mark your calendars for next Thursday, June 25, 2020. The virtual awards reception will take place on the NC3C private Facebook group. Throughout the day, we will be recognizing the first and second place winners of our annual awards competition from among 192 total entries. All entries were judged by our communications colleagues with the Minnesota Association of Government Communicators. While the awards are announced, we encourage you to post comments, gifs, photos and videos to congratulate the winners.
To get access to the private group you must be a current NC3C member. If you’re an NC3C member but do not currently have access to this closed Facebook group, send us a request and we’ll add you to the group. If your membership has lapsed (most renewals happen when registering for the annual conference) please go to the NC3C website to renew your membership this week.

The 2020 Awards Gallery will be live on starting Friday, June 26, 2020 so you can view all the winning entries. If you won an award, you will be contacted the day after the ceremony with information to help you promote your win locally and instructions on how to collect your trophy.

We can’t wait to see you (virtually) next week and hopefully in person in the near future. Please read through the rest of this email for more information on upcoming opportunities to connect.

Regional Meetings

The NC3C Board is working hard to plan for fall regional meetings. Each year, we work to plan and coordinate at least three regional meetings (that are free to attend for members and guests) in addition to our annual conference. This year is no different! Here is the regional line-up so far:

Late September – Hickory – How NOT to Brand with Haven Creative 

September/October – Jacksonville – Topic is TBD

What required to host a regional?

If you want to host, you’ll be responsible for providing a space and coordinating a speaker and topic. NC3C pays for lunch for all attendees and regional meetings are free to attend for guests and attendees. 

If you are interested in hosting a regional, please reach out to Rick Mercier or Mark Andrews.
