Top Corporate, Military And Government Leaders Headline National Communications Summit In Washington DC April 22-23

WASHINGTON, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Some of the country's top communications and public affairs officers will speak at the 4th National Summit on Strategic Communications on April 22-23 in Washington DC when 100 leaders and CEOs from corporate, military and government communications, public relations and public affairs assemble to identify and discuss strategies which enhance engagement and to share best practices to improve communication.

A complete agenda, faculty and registration information is available at Discounts for early registration are available until March 8. The venue is the Washington Plaza Hotel.

"More than ever, communications and public affairs officers are taking a leadership role to align what organizations say with what they do to ensure those actions are synchronized with organization values, character and strategies – and with the public's expectations," said Robert Grupp, Summit Director and chair of the non-profit Strategic Communications Leadership Initiative. "The annual Strategic Summit provides insights and tools to do that well across multiple industry sectors, in the Department of Defense and in government agencies."  

Although the term "strategic communications" is broad and its meaning has been debated by practitioners – most recently by the Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs, who will open the Summit on Monday, April 22 – there is unanimous agreement among leaders in the field today that communication is the core of strategic leadership.

"We must not abandon the fundamental principles upon which responsible and effective corporate communications, military public affairs and government relations are founded," Grupp added.

  • George Little, Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs, PENTAGON
  • Brigadier General Les Kodlick, Director of Public Affairs, US AIR FORCE
