Iowa NAMA: Managing Crisis Communication

Written by NAMA on Wednesday, January 7, 2015 , 9:15 am

Crises happen. We can wish that they won’t, but they do. Please join the Iowa NAMA Chapter on Friday, January 9, where Dr. Kris Boone-Payne will talk about how people respond in a crisis, how we can prepare, how we behave as the crisis unfolds, and how to clean up afterward.  Communication is a key and can have a crucial role in reducing severity.

Dr. Boone is Department Head and Professor at Kansas State University. She supervises all functions in the department and represents it to other campus communications and IT groups and within K-State Research and Extension. She was previously departmental academic coordinator for agricultural communications and journalism and has been department head since 2003. Boone is a former extension agent and has experience in newspapers and public relations. She has served on numerous campus committees and in national capacities with NCERA 224 and the Association for Communication Excellence.

WHEN: January 9, 2015
WHERE: FFA Enrichment Center
TIME: 11:30 a.m.

Networking begins at 11:30 a.m. and the discussion will start at noon.

Written by NAMA on Wednesday, January 7, 2015 , 9:14 am

IMG_8745IMG_0751The MoKan Chapter held its first annual charity drive supporting Harvesters, Kansas City’s regional food bank that serves a 26-county area of northwestern Missouri and northeastern Kansas.

Chapter officers dropped off giving boxes at participating member offices with a competition of which office could give the most. Participating businesses included: AdFarm, Emfluence, Grey Healthcare Group, McCormick Company, Osborn Barr, SFP, and Woodruff Sweitzer… with AdFarm taking home the charity drive trophy (and bragging rights)!

To add a little extra fun to the giving, a Holiday Happy Hour was hosted at BCS Communications on December 18th.
