Congratulations to NAGC's 2015 Communicator of the Year,
As digital media strategist for the General Services Administration, Jessica Milcetich developed and executed a marketing strategy for USA.gov. She managed a highly successful social media program that connected with the public 632,773,802 times, averaging about 7 percent growth every month. In fiscal year (FY) 2014, USA.gov’s social media community of followers grew to 839,426, a 39.6 percent increase from FY2013.
Jessica was specifically
nominated for and named the NAGC Communicator of the Year for a
special election day promotion she created.
Every election year, USA.gov works to help make sure citizens are
able to exercise their right to vote. Because mid-term elections
generally don’t have a large turnout, the USA.gov team also
wanted to recognize the people who took time to go vote. Learn more about NAGC's 2015 Communicator of the Year.
NAGC Webinar: "Social Media Security: It's
Presented by Lt. Anastacia Visneski, Coast Guard's Digital Media Officer
(May 13, 2015) The video and slides from this webinar, which was held on May 13, 2015,
are posted in the members only area on the NAGC Webinars page.
Did you know with just
your first name and a couple of pictures, someone can find your yearly income,
where you work, and your address? Just as critical as agencies using
official social media accounts safely is teaching employees how to be safe with
their personal accounts. With the ever-increasing popularity of social media,
the lines between personal and professional lives are increasingly difficult to
distinguish. This webinar discussed common mistakes made by users on
social media when it comes to protecting personal information and teach how to
be more vigilant about what information is being shared online.
