PIO Webinar to Review Career Education Advertising & Outreach Concepts for FY 2020-21

Dear Colleagues,

The California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office recently concluded a Listening Tour regarding the next statewide Career Education marketing and advertising campaign. New creative concepts were shared and feedback was provided as we prepare for statewide focus group testing, concept selection, production and campaign rollout in Fiscal Year 2020-21. A total of seven Regional Listening Sessions, with more than 200 participants, have been completed to date throughout the state.

For those not able to attend an in-person Regional Listening Session, we are conducting a webinar on January 14 to review/discuss the creative concepts and the results of the meetings.  Please note, all participants will be able to provide feedback on the concepts during the webinar.
