After a year of hard work, lots of meetings and planning, I am proud to announce the launch of the Certified Public Communicator Program at TCU!
My colleague,Dr. Jacque Lambiase, is the master mind behind this innovative new program that offers public information officers a place to learn and hone their skills in strategic communication. The program is the first of its kind to be offered to communication professionals who work in city, county and public sector agencies. The CPC program is a partnership of TCU’s Schieffer School of Journalism, Extended Education, and the Texas Association of Municipal Information Officers.
The Certified Public Communicator Program at TCU is a post-baccalaureate, graduate-level residential program for two summers (one week each in 2013 and 2014), plus a two-day winter session with strategic communication professors from TCU’s Schieffer School of Journalism.
Professional communicators working for city, county, and public-sector agencies create three-year comprehensive communication plans for their organizations during the program.
I am excited to be a member of the core team launching this program in July 2013. If you are interested in the program or want to learn more, visit our website at www.certifiedpubliccommunicator.com.
