Mission

Corporate Communications & Marketing advances the City’s corporate vision by offering a comprehensive approach by integrating our communication and marketing resources. These resources include strategic planning, project management, creative services, media research and buying, media relations, tracking media coverage, media training, special event management, telecasting of City Council and County Commission Meetings and local programming on The GOV Channel, web services to support charmeck.org and charlottenc.gov and corporate brand management.
 
We’re proud to manage the City’s brand which features the coveted City crown signature mark. The logo cannot be used without permission from Corporate Communications.
 
We also help recruit and retain our talent by communicating benefits and news to more than 6,700 City employees.  We produce CROWN Magazine, an employee newsletter, CROWN ENews and distribute e-blasts to keep employees informed and motivated. We engage in partnerships with community and business partners to increase the public’s knowledge and access to City services.
