The Cloud: Using Information to Engage the Community

We live in a time when citizens are looking for new ways to engage with their communities.  While most communities have made some inroads with digital communications, there are unprecedented opportunities to expand civic engagement beyond the town hall. Dennis Harward from TownCloud will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of various forms of digital communications and describe strategies and techniques for bringing your government to the citizens in the digital world where they live.

This webinar will feature:

  • different examples of effective use of social media 
  • strategies for digital communications
  • new ways to engage your community

This is a free webinar sponsored by an ICMA Strategic Partner who will have access to the registration contact information.
