The Federal Communicators Network (FCN) formed in 1996 as a national organization for Federal communicators to help bring reinvention information to front-line Federal workers and "create an environment for reinvention to flourish."
FCN has more than 600 members, 75% of which are from Federal agencies, offices, and military establishments in Washington DC, across the country and around the world. The remaining 25% are from the legislative and judicial branches; interagency, international, nonprofit, and private groups; state and local organizations, and Federal unions. With this range of talent, expertise, and circulation, the FCN is a powerful agent for communicating the message of better government.
Membership to FCN is open to all Federal employees willing and able to promote better government that costs less and delivers results Americans care about. In addition, non-government persons engaged in communication or public relations whose professional activities enhance, further, or support the objectives of the FCN, are also welcome to join.

OhMyGov! wants better government -- a more creative, more efficient, smarter government! So we set out to do the unthinkable: build a news and information site about government that was both interesting and fun to read. We offer an entertaining mix of "good gov" stories about public sector innovations and advances (yep, imagine that!) and comforting "bad gov" tales of government embarrassments and outrages. In short, we cover anything that makes you say OhMyGov!
OhMyGov! was founded by 3 guys looking to make a difference — an experienced federal executive, a motivated government contractor and writer, and a best-selling investigative journalist. For more information, go to: http://ohmygov.com/
