Conversations That Matter
MGA is pleased to welcome five new clients to its roster:
- Enerplus, one of Canada's oldest resource trusts now operating as a corporation with oil and gas exploration and production in Canada and the United States, engaged MGA to conduct research and provide recommendations on a community investment program for its operations on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in North Dakota.
MGA is seeking a well-rounded public relations professional with particular experience in media relations and social media to join its growing team. We are especially interested in candidates with three to five years of experience.
Families and high school students ponder this question every year, especially when job prospects for young adults are unpredictable. But two recent studies show a college education is both a good value and beneficial.
FEMA Urges Americans to Join in Memory of 9/11 Victims, Responders
As the nation battles hurricanes, tropical storms and wildfires this fall, the need for disaster preparedness is clear.
In an earlier post I wrote about an up-and-coming Colorado swimmer named Missy Franklin. She recently competed in her first world swimming championship in Shanghai. To say her participation was a success is an understatement.
Most of the financial experts seem to be in concert – raise the debt ceiling. So what is the hold up? Does America need to reduce our expenses? Yes! Do we need to increase revenue? Yes!
It’s been quite the hectic few weeks at MGA – a new office that is half the size of our old one, and the purging of items accumulated over nearly 25 years in one spot. It's been a bittersweet experience for many here. Reflecting that, below are some thoughts offered up by MGA employees on moving and change.
MGA Communications, Inc., called 1125 17th Street home for 23 years. While we have moved on to a new space, we have tried to spend some time reflecting on our move. As we look back, we are reminded of all of the changes we’ve noticed and been in the middle of over the years.
A “Wild Thing” is happening at MGA! We’re “On the Road Again” and we want to “Shout” about our move. We’re “Headed for the Future!”
The U.S. Census Bureau is just starting to release the results of last year’s census. While one of the main purposes of collecting such data every 10 years is to redraw district lines for the U.S. House of Representatives, it’s also a treasure trove of information for public relations professionals. Figuring out how to find the information you need, however, can be a challenge.
If you’ve been to the MGA office recently, or have seen our recent posts, you know we’ve been in the midst of a serious spring cleaning. Besides disposing of old office equipment and the like, there’s a reason for it – we’re moving!
No one knows why or who left “Pop” in our office, but he’s been here for a long, long time. Some say as many as 30 years! And now? Abandoned again.
As part of a spring cleaning office at the MGA office, we've come across some magnificent examples of office equipment from days gone by. One of the items is a 40 year-old IBM Selectric II (with ink still in it!). It was used by Rosie Marcus, MGA's former administrative assistant who passed away in 2007 (and who is still missed by many).
The second of a two-part series; read Kip’s first post here.
Sound communication strategies are needed to manage radioactive risk in Japan. Thousands of residents need help reconciling their personal future with real or perceived threats to human health and the environment. But who helps with this? The Japanese government’s new rebuilding effort could be the logical first step.
On May 19, the U.S. Bureau of the Census released more detailed demographic data for Colorado and 10 other states. It has been a year since state residents completed their Census form. Unfortunately, Colorado’s response to the Census (72%) was below the national average (74%), and well below the best return rate produced in Wisconsin (82%).
For the wildlife and film lovers that missed the first weekend of the first annual Rocky Mountain Wildlife Film Festival, the festival continues tomorrow, May 27, through Sunday May 29.
Below is the first in a two-part series about radioactive risk management in Japan following March’s earthquake and tsunami. MGA’s Kip Cheroutes is the director of an eight-year education program for Japanese teachers of English, funded by Japan’s Ministry of Education. He has traveled throughout Japan, including Tohoku, and has conducted business there in government, university and business settings.
When spring arrives, I always think about the swimming pools opening soon. For 10 years up through high school, I was a competitive swimmer in breaststroke. (I later learned my siblings and I each had to learn how to swim and play piano because my mom couldn’t do either.)
Last night, we were honored by the Colorado Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) for our outstanding commitment to the public relations industry and successful special event and social media programs.

I recently attended TedxMileHigh, an educational program that was independently organized by various members of the Mile High community. The topic of the conference was inspired citizenship, and inspiring it was.
Please join us in welcoming six new clients to MGA's roster:
AstraZeneca, one of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies, engaged MGA Communications for Colorado-focused legislative and public policy outreach.

Last fall, I tweeted about a local natural disaster. A while later, I found my tweet had made it to the pages of a local media outlet's website. This occurrence made me think: is this action legal? Appropriate? Or even ethical in social media etiquette standards? What are the standards?
