Have a Great Summer!

There are no OCG meetings in July and August, but that doesn’t mean we need to stop communicating! If you have a job you’d like to promote, email Sam Cagle, sam.cagle70@gmail.com. If you have a training or event you’d like posted on the website, email Niquette Kelcher, niquettek@gmail.com.

We’ll see you again in the Fall!


Reminder: Last OCG Meeting Before Summer Break!

Today is our last OCG meeting as we head into summer break. We’ll resume again in the fall.

Today’s speakers are from Washington State Department of Transportation and Washington State Patrol. They’ll discuss the crisis communications efforts in the DuPont derailment. Join us in the usual place, at the usual time, and learn how these two agencies coped with a disaster in our own backyard.

When: Wednesday, June 6, Noon-1:00

Where: Association of Washington School Principals, 1021 8th Ave. SE, Olympia, WA 98501
