Sachs Media Group announced it has been named agency of record for the National League of Cities (NLC), America’s leading advocate for local government. Sachs Media Group is among the nation’s top public affairs communications firms and will raise the NLC’s public profile while working to enhance the League’s ambitious agenda for helping city leaders build better communities.
Serving cities is a core function of Sachs Media Group. The Florida League of Cities became Sachs Media Group’s first client in 1996 and remains a client today.
“We’re proud and excited to work with the National League of Cities to help push forward its mission to protect community interests, seek federal funding for local investments, and keep national attention focused on what neighborhoods need across the country,” said Ron Sachs, president and CEO of Sachs Media Group. “Surveys keep showing how local government is the most trusted level of government. From challenges to ‘home rule’ to the burden that unfunded mandates place on taxpayers, our long history with the Florida League of Cities has given us a strong appreciation for the great challenges facing our cities and towns.”
Sachs Media Group has offices in Tallahassee and Orlando. The Bulldog Reporter named the firm as the nation’s “PR Agency of the Year” in its class in 2011. With superior experience in public affairs, branding, social, digital and crisis communications, Sachs Media Group is one of the nation’s leading independent communications firms.
The firm’s extraordinary talent for engaging with audiences using cutting-edge strategies has won the firm several Emmy, Addy, Bulldog Reporter and Image awards. Its addition of the NLC helps expand Sachs Media Group’s national client roster that includes “Get Ready, America!” – The National Hurricane Survival Initiative, “Drive for Life” – The National Safe Driving Initiative, Nestle Waters of North America and Automated Healthcare Solutions.
“We’re delighted to have Sachs Media Group represent the National League of Cities in promoting our mission to build local relationships at the national level,” said Clarence Anthony, executive director of the National League of Cities. “Sachs Media Group will bring us an important ‘outside the beltway’ perspective in our work to improve communication with national leaders, member cities and the general public as we spread the word on issues vital to the success of cities and towns across our nation.”
