    KEYNOTE SPEAKER Kelly Huston, deputy director, Governor’s Office of Emergency Services

    Grand Sierra A/B

    Sometimes the daily tasks of your role as a PIO keep you from stepping back and seeing the bigger picture of why you do what you do, or where you fit in the overall organization. For over 20 years Kelly Huston has had a window into the small and large crises that communities across the state of California have encountered. What are you as a PIO training for? How do your daily “workouts” help you prepare for the moment when your community needs you the most? What is the difference between writing a press release and crafting a message to reach your audience? There is a critical difference – and being a trained PIO matters.

    Grand Sierra C

    The City of Sacramento relaunched its website and blog in 2014, in response to rising citizen expectations

    for seamless, online services. Sacramento recognized that its website was only going to be valuable if

    people used it, so they mapped out a plan to overhaul their communication strategy to drive traffic and

    usage of the new site and new services. The City of Sacramento ramped up its use of the email, text

    messaging, and social media to help drive traffic to new online properties and get citizens more engaged

    with the city's programs. The city uses email messages as the backbone of its communications, which

    range from marina updates, to messages on economic development initiatives, to alerts on water

    conservation efforts. Sacramento increased its focus on outbound communication as the primary driver of

    stakeholder engagement. This session will cover the top ways Sacramento has used digital communication

    channels to drive its audience to action from compelling subject lines to subscription overlays and more.
