The role of the City of Kalajoki’s communications is to actively provide information on the city’s operations and facilitate the interaction between the city, the residents of the municipality and other interest groups. Communications and marketing are also used for influencing the image of the City of Kalajoki and the pursuit of the city’s strategic goals.
The city’s communications are led and monitored by the City Board in accordance with the Local Government Act. In practice, communications are decentralised to various services, and each service has its own communications officer and communications plan.
Communications and marketing for the city as a whole are managed centrally. The communications and marketing coordinator coordinates and develops the city’s overall communications, in addition to supporting and providing advice to the communications officers of the various services. The main policies and strategic goals for communications are decided by the communications team. The communications team consists of the coordinator and the communications officers of each service.
Tourism marketing in Kalajoki is managed by Kalajoki Tourism Association.
