CDRPC Local Government Workshop Webinar: Engaging Residents in the COVID-19 Era – Lessons Learned from the “New Normal”
April 14, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm$15
MRB Group’s SmarterLocalGov team is involved in many forms of public outreach and engagement, including community-wide planning, and supporting Zoning Board and Planning Board Meetings, as well as public education efforts. Local government exists for its citizens! In the new “COVID era,” there is an even greater need to encourage residents to stay engaged. This workshop will discuss ways to encourage enhanced participation, despite the current challenges. We will also share some mishaps we’ve witnessed along the way — and how creative ways to engage the public requires equally creative measures to protect public engagement.
This session is made possible by Presenting Sponsor the MRB Group.
