When you choose to belong to NDPIO, this webpage will be a ready resource for you.

The NDPIO Association is a 501c3 non-profit statewide organization made up of professional communicators who work in local, state, tribal, federal or other public safety venues. This organization is dedicated to the principles of open government.

While titles and roles vary, many members serve as the media contact for their organization. Other roles may include public relations, public education, social media management, photography, videography, digital and print design, website management, speech writing, and emergency communications management, or a combination of these roles. NDPIO is dedicated to the professional development and enhancement of its members. The association offers opportunities for members to meet throughout the year to network and exchange information, resources, ideas, and news related to the public information profession.

NDPIO allows PIOs from across North Dakota to build professional relationships and gather for training. The network of PIOs will be an asset to the state that if/when an incident occurs, assembling a team to assist is immediate and streamlined.
