PIO Section Midyear Meeting
This document is intended to support understanding of the value of membership to the IACP and the Public Information Officer (PIO) Section to your supervisor or to the decision makers at your agency. Helping your agency leaders understand the value of this section, and of the IACP, will not only benefit you, but also your organization, your communities, and beyond. As a member of the Public Information Officer Section, you quickly learn valuable skills that help build institutional knowledge when it comes to working relationships with media representatives, social media strategies that work for your communities, and hands-on training at annual conferences provides you with immediate skills that you can in turn employ at your agency.
