The creation and adoption of a strategic communications plan often represents a significant step for an organization. For many, the adoption of a plan is a cultural shift toward communications and a clear recognition that all the organization’s efforts have a communications element.   

Public education, grassroots organizing, research, public advocacy, direct services and fundraising are all communications tasks vital to the health and success of a organization, both nonprofit or for-profit.  

A strategic communications plan has the power to transform an organization, both in terms of credibility and community status, as well as the way you work together as a team to achieve your mission and vision.  

There are six things to know before implementing a communication plan:  

      1.  Infrastructure
      2.  Goals
      3.  Target
      4.  Audience
      5.  Message
      6.  Timeframe
