By Land, Air and Sea: Charting a Course for Complex Communications

A Conversation with Kathy Roeder
Director of Communications - Port of Seattle

Heading up a communications team for an organization with 47 million airport passengers, one million cruise passengers, cargo shipping terminals, commercial fishing terminals, recreational boat marinas and waterfront parks is a full-time job for even the most capable communications pro. Now, add to the mix that the public agency is a veritable hydra in its organizational structure, with its leadership comprised of five publicly elected commissioners and an executive director. Its constituencies run the gamut from international ocean-going shippers to vacation travelers heading to Disneyland, from chowder-serving restaurateurs to angry political protestors intent on making a statement about the Trump administration.

Welcome to a day in the life of Kathy Roeder, the communications director for the Port of Seattle. Join us for a free-wheeling conversation with Kathy, a PR pro, WagEd alum and former communications consultant for the current president of Afghanistan, Ashraf Ghani - talk about the challenges and opportunities she faces in representing the communications interests of the Port of Seattle.

Be part of the conversation. Join us from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, August 24, 2017 at the South Lake Union Discovery Center: 101 Westlake Avenue North, Seattle, Washington 98109.
