In 2018, AGD is working to strengthen and support communications tools disseminated to AGD constituents. This grassroots approach will help local market constituents generate positive media coverage and reach both members and consumers. The public information officer, editors, webmasters and nationally selected spokespersons will work together to strengthen brand awareness on the constituent level. Several training calls and webinars are planned throughout the year. If you are active in one of these roles, watch for more information. If you are interested in becoming involved in communications efforts, contact AGD Public Relations and Communications Specialist Nakea S. Barksdale at firstname.lastname@example.org.
