3CMA Webinar Series
The pace of life as a local government communicator is not for the weak of heart. Add in the demands of 2020 and we all feel like hamsters on a never-ending treadmill. Join us for this 3CMA webinar where two experienced government communicators share tips on how technology can help take some of the burdens off your plate. They will also share advice on prioritizing work, finding ways to eliminate or shift work demands, and the importance of a reasonable work/life balance.
