(16 May 2018) The role of state-level government in public diplomacy will take center-stage at the June 4 First Monday program. The noon event is cosponsored by PDAA and takes place at the Elliott School on the George Washington University campus in Washington, D.C.

Governing Magazine recently pointed out that President Trump’s ‘America First’ message and his new trade policies have caused anxiety in states where the economy depends on investment from abroad. It’s pushing governors to hone their diplomatic skills.

The speakers at the June 4 event will be Scott Pattison, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of the National Governors Association, and Tiffany Shackelford, Chief Strategic Officer and Director of the NGA’s new Global office.

Prior to joining NGA, Pattison served for over 14 years as director of the National Association of State Budget Officers, supporting governors’ chief financial officers and budget directors. Prior to NGA, Shackelford was the executive director at the Association of Alternative Newsmedia, where she focused on pushing the media industry forward through research and development of smart digital tools.

Monday forums are a joint project of the USC Center on Public Diplomacy, USC Center on Communication Leadership and Policy, Public Diplomacy Council, and PDAA – an association of public diplomacy professionals. The event takes place on Monday, June 4, in the Lindner Family Commons room of the Elliott School at George Washington University, 1957 E Street, NW, Room 602, in Washington, D.C., beginning at 12 noon. Sandwiches and refreshments will be served.

The event is free, but advance registrations by e-mail are required: FirstMondayForum.RSVP@gmail.com.
