The AFGE Communications Department is available to meet with AFGE locals, councils, and districts to help map out their communications goals. A communications strategy session will include an overview of departmental resources and how the local, council, or district can use video, websites, advertising, press releases, and other mediums to effectively communicate the issues and topics important to the AFGE membership and the public.
This 60-minute strategy planning session will assist locals, councils, or districts with setting communications goals and objectives, assessing current communications needs and resources, and developing content planning structures. Participants will be provided templates for email campaigns, social media posts, event flyers, an informational newsletter, as well as additional learning resources.
This 30-minute one-on-one session is designed to help locals, councils, and districts jump start their engagement on social media. Participants will receive guidance on how to set up Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, as well as tips on how to maintain these social media platforms. Participants additionally will learn about the basic steps in building a social media plan.
There is no need for coding or previous web design knowledge, but someone who is familiar with Microsoft Office and email or social media will have the greatest success. Training and setup will be handled by the Communications Department.AFGE's Affiliate Microsite Program allows us to setup websites with AFGE Affiliates (locals, districts, and councils). Some of the basic features of the Microsites include the ability to host password protected content for AFGE members only, upload images/documents, provide important contact info for your local members and much more.
