She is scheduled to address the Utah Association of Counties Nov. 14, during its annual convention in St. George.

“Government associations often don’t consider branding as a strategy, since they don’t have a product to sell,” Morrow said. “But good marketing and consistent branding is about understanding your audience and communicating effectively.”
