What would you do if you lost the ability to contact your product because of a labor dispute, but you still had to produce work for them? The NFL was faced with this challenge when the league entered a lockout on March 11, 2011. The Houston Texans, along with the 31 other teams in the NFL had to change their communication plans for 18 weeks. Please join us on Wednesday, Mar. 7, at 11:30 a.m. to hear Houston Texans’ Corporate Communications Manager, Zac Emmons, speak about the challenges the team faced during the lockout and the similarities between his job and yours.
