Dave Hebert

leads internal and audio-visual communication at the U.S. Geological Survey, including strategy, messaging, policy, standards, and tactics. His job is to help USGS leadership and employees connect with each other through open and useful channels of communication, and to help the USGS use video, audio, and graphic design to convey its mission to internal and external audiences. He’s been with the USGS since 2003, and has also co-chaired the Federal Communicators Network and is a senior fellow in the Partnership for Public Service's Excellence in Government program.

The USGS is the Nation’s largest earth science agency and provides information on the health of our ecosystems and environment, the natural hazards that threaten us, the natural resources we rely on, the impacts of climate and land-use change, and the core science systems that help us provide timely, relevant, and useable information.

Why Enter the NAGC Blue Pencil/Gold Screen Awards?
Just ask Barbara Page...

"Last year I won a Blue Pencil Award for The Book of Air. Apparently, the government of Australia was impressed and invited me to be the keynote speaker and workshop facilitator at their Government Marketing Conference in Canberra. So I'm off to Australia due to [NAGC]. Thought you might like to know. I am also working on an IMAX film on air that is a wonderful project and funded by EPA." - Barbara Page, Ventura, California
