2016 Annual Conference - San Antonio, TX | September 7th - 9th
|“Deep in the Heart of Communications”
“The stars at night are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas.”
Those are more than just song lyrics. They paint a picture of life in the Lone Star State; prairie skies, sage in bloom, coyotes and cowboys - all in the heart of Texas. It’s a state so big there are mountains, prairies, forests, beaches, lakes and canyons all within its borders. It truly is “like a whole other country.” But Texas is not so big that you can’t find its heart. It’s the friendly people who want to make sure you’re a having a good time. It’s in amazing barbecue and spicy Tex-Mex cuisine. It’s in the music that is a genre all its own. It’s in a rich history and diverse culture that still elicits pride among its citizens and is celebrated every day.
It’s in the heart of Texas that communicators from cities and counties across the country will find their inspiration as the 2016 3CMA Annual Conference returns to San Antonio Sept. 7-9 to get “Deep in the Heart of Communications.” Getting to the heart of what cities and counties communicate and how they communicate has always been the 3CMA conference goal. This year, with the San Antonio Riverwalk as a backdrop, you’ll have sessions on social media, video, citizen engagement, ethics, communications planning and advertising. You’ll not only hear from your peers on their processes and successes, you’ll hear from some of the industry’s top experts. You’ll leave Texas inspired and ready to rethink, reinvent and re-imagine your role as government communicators.
Unforgettable San Antonio
But it’s not just about getting to the heart of communications. You’ll have an opportunity to reconnect with colleagues in the fun and festive atmosphere of San Antonio. From the dozens of Riverwalk restaurants and shops to the historic Alamo and its sister Spanish missions, the city can give visitors a unique look at one of country’s most treasured historic cities. Art, architecture, music, food, and authentic culture – a visit to San Antonio has it all.
