Back to Basics-Renovating the Old Town Hall

Tuesday, August 12, 2014, 2PM (EDT)

For all the new technologies on the market for engaging people, the tried-and-true Town Hall is still one of the more effective ways of encouraging and stimulating dialogue. Jeanne Lawson of JLA Public Involvement will give some hints on how to improve your next Town Hall meeting by incorporating written comments into the feedback and facilitation process. 

Learn about why this approach works and the variety of tools that you can use to gather both verbal and written input.  Jeanne will share her own lessons learned using this approach on two recent projects. There will also be lots of opportunity for you to share your own experiences with traditional methodologies, so register today!

Important: when you receive your registration confirmation e-mail, you will see another link. You will need to click on that link to reserve your "seat" at our virtual table and receive your login instructions.
