  • The Modern Ombuds Communications Toolkit:
           One of the greatest challenges ombuds face is trying to explain our work and why it is so important. Addressing this challenge has been at the heart of an effort undertaken by IOA’s Public Relations Strategy Task Force. This task force has been hard at work producing new messages to help members like you spread the word about the value ombuds provide to the people, organizations, and communities we serve around the world.
            To introduce our new initiative, IOA presented a video at the 14th Annual Conference that speaks to a new theme of the “Modern Ombuds.” We invite you to watch the video about our new messaging direction. In addition to the video, we have also produced a new benefit for IOA members. The Ombuds Communications Toolkit (member login required for access) will help ombuds deliver effective messages to different audiences.
