Communications team wins award for newsletterThe Weld County Public Communications team was awarded the “Tech Trailblazer” Award from Granicus, a software company specializing in digital communications for government organizations.

“Our communications team has done a great job bringing county government information to residents through a variety of platforms,” said Commissioner Chair Mike Freeman. “Their use of subscriber-based newsletters to provide additional county information to the public has been a great tool for government as we continue to improve and increase our communication platforms.”

The team received the “Tech Trailblazer” award, which according to Granicus, “is the company’s highest honor for leaders in public sector digital transformation. This award, recognizing digital transformation excellence, identifies initiatives that have delivered a profound improvement in government activities, process and/or competencies by transitioning from outdated tech or in-person interactions to modern digital technologies.”

The county publishes several newsletters including the County Roots newsletter, which highlights some of the partnerships, technology and efficiencies county government uses to make government stronger and more effective for residents.

“There are interesting projects, programs and people within county government that warrant sharing with the public,” said Communications Director Jennifer Finch. “It’s exciting to continue to see more and more people engage with the county through this platform.”
