The Crisis Communication Think Tank (CCTT) is a yearly event, sponsored by the C. Yarbrough Professorship in Crisis Communication Leadership, the Center for Health and Risk Communication, the Georgia Athletic Association Professorship in Grady College and the Hearst Visiting Professionals Fund at the University of Georgia. The CCTT attendees are invited members of a crisis communication coalition, selected as thought leaders in the field. The CCTT aims to build collaborations among researchers, practitioners, and educators, in and outside the U.S., in advancing crisis communication science and practice through dialogue on emerging topics and co-creation of evidence-based advice for next-generation crisis research and practice.
CCTT membership is by invitation only. A small group of recognized crisis scholars and practitioners, based on their crisis scholarship and/or professional communication leadership in crisis practice, are invited to join the think tank as members or participate as guests in the annual CCTT event.
