Welcome to the latest edition of the Alaska Strategist. 

Is anyone else worn out from the tone of civil discourse lately? We are, and realize that communicators need to be part of finding ways to bring civility back to the public square. Read more in our blog post, below. You can also get a sneak peek at emojis in development (which inexplicably still does not include a salmon,) and learn more about how you could potentially win $49K for vaccinating against COVID-19. As public relations professionals, it’s our job to stay up to date on the latest communications trends. Need help communicating something with your stakeholders? Get in touch. Consultations are always free.

Anyone watching the news or using social media can see that civil discourse has gone out the window. Communicators with the Public Relations Society of America are taking on the challenge. 

Still no salmon, but some cool new emojis are on the way.
Emoji is set to release their latest and greatest symbols to help you better express yourself. We're still holding out for a salmon emoji...maybe next year.
