Communication publique is a well-known association famous for its expertise. It was founded by Pierre Zémor in 1989. He was the chairman of the association until 2009. Communication publique examines the strategic stakes with which communication directors are confronted to help them fully play their part in the institutions.
The association’s main goal is to stimulate the communications industry and make the image of communication in the public service look more dynamic.
Communication in the public institutions is being constantly and deeply transformed. These changes are putting us at the heart of ongoing disruptions with a managerial aspect to assert – if not to defend – in particular for our professions. Communication publique wants to take up these challenges and offer new scopes of meeting and thinking to come up to communications managers’ issues, questions and expectations. But we are also open to new ideas and suggestions you would like to address/submit us. Communication publique wants to take part in the debate about the modernisation of the civil service and fulfill the needs and expectations of citizens as well as users. Communication publique is financed only by its members, granting independence and continuity to the association. Last but not least, our initiatives are opportunities to meet and share experiences with other communication directors.
- To form a network of communication directors and executive managers of the public institutions.
- To foster meetings, exchanges of best practices and theoretical thinking on public communication.
- To encourage cooperation between public communicators and civil service officers as well as politicians, primarily local governors.
