Need Our Help

We're here for you. Communications and External Affairs (CEA) includes a team of project managers who are your primary points of contact for all CEA projects.

Handling requests for everything from new web content to media outreach, project managers are charged with delivering projects on time, on budget, and on message. See some of CEA's work.

Your project manager will coordinate CEA writers, editors, publicists, designers, marketers, photographers, and video and web producers as needed—and be your source for information and progress reports until your project is complete.
