To say that 2016 was rough going is an understatement. For many people it was stressful, tumultuous, tragic, or surreal. We could all use a reminder about the good news that happened this year thanks to U.S. government agencies large and small.

Rather than dwell on downers or let politics foul the mood, let’s look back at the top 10 most impressive government successes of the year.

I had a blast guest hosting +Marlene Oliveira's Nonprofit MarCommunity #NPMC tweet chat. It was a fast and furious Twitter conversation about storybanks for better #storytelling. There was space for learning by people new to storytelling as well as people who have already established storybank systems. See what we discussed in the archives of the tweet chat. #contentstrategy #socialmedia #nptech
