Does your work in a municipal office include communications? If so, you might be thinking:
I want to protect my team from risk if something goes wrong.
I’m tired of being in react mode when another story hits the news.
I just don’t have the resources or the time to get on top of communications.
I really care about the residents here. I wish there was a way to show it better.
Communicating with residents can be messy, complicated and risky, especially when resources and budgets are tight.
We've got you covered.
Be proactive and plan ahead
Avoid pitfalls and misinformation
Choose the right tactics to engage citizens
Make sure your messages are well-timed, clear and effective
Who should attend
the Accelerator Training Program?
Accelerator is designed to help people at the front lines of communication, whether you have a full-time communications coordinator or communications is one item on a long list shared between 1 or 2 people juggling multiple priorities.
MMAA members can earn 10 PD credits at every workshop.
We are thrilled to be partnering with the Manitoba Municipal Administrators' Association. They are offering PD credits for each session that you attend.
Learn from industry experts on how you can better plan for risk, listen to residents and how to plan ahead for challenging projects.
The Accelerator Training Program features:
Six facilitated online workshops each year to help you build skills and confidence in engaging citizens, discuss common challenges across municipalities, and get expert insight on how to address them.
Timely key messages and templates (6 per workshop) featuring pre-written key messages to optimize to fit your seasonal calendar and optimize your use of Connect.
An opportunity to send your questions in advance. Before each webinar, we’ll send you a pre-registration question/comment submission to ensure your challenges are addressed and guide the workshop content.
This new training program brings municipal administrators together in facilitated online workshops to ask questions, get answers, define key communication challenges and engagement needs of the moment and access professionally developed content templates to better engage and inform your citizens.
There are two ways to participate. Sign up for individual webinars or for the whole series. When you sign up for the series you save $125 per workshop!
After each workshop you’ll receive:
- A summary of workshop slides with questions and answers (FAQs)
- A recording of the webinar
- A new set of key messages delivered in Connect templates (email, text, app, phone) so you’re ready for the next quarter
