10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET, Thursday, June 8, 2023: Mastering Graphic Design for SocialGov Accounts
As a government social media communicator, verbal and written communication is only a portion of the job. If your accompanying visuals don’t make an impact, the other parts of your messaging you worked so hard on may not even be seen or heard! So how do you design graphics for social to increase engagement, both online and offline?
Join us on Thursday, June 8, 2023 to share tips and tricks to maximize the impact of your designs and talk about how to maintain your voice and brand when working with leadership and other departments. Attend this chat in the free GSM network.
10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET, Thursday, June 22, 2023: To be announced!

10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET, Tuesday, June 13: Influencers 101: Best Practices and Practical Approaches for Public Health Campaigns
In February 2023, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published an introductory resource for public health practitioners who are interested in integrating influencers into their public education efforts. The guide draws on FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products’ nine years of experience working with influencers and shares best practices and case studies from the office’s youth tobacco prevention campaigns. Tune in on June 13, 2023 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET to hear two of the FDA authors provide an overview of the guide and discuss influencer programs in a public health context. While the recommendations and examples are drawn from a tobacco prevention context, the knowledge can be applied more broadly to any public education campaign.
10:30 a.m. PT / 1:30 p.m. ET, Tuesday, June 27: SocialGov Roundup
