Building a Culture of Engagement in Your Community: Livestreaming Your Council Meetings

60-Minute Education Session

Monday, September 19 from 2:30PM – 3:30PM

Room D283-D284

Participation in townhall meetings or the public comment period in a council meeting has long been a hallmark of civic engagement. Live engagement is still the best way to connect, but technology offers new avenues to link arms with the community. Online engagement opens up the opportunity for all voices to be heard. Digital solutions--forced during the pandemic--now allow councils to accelerate both recovery and connection with their communities. When workplace, home, financial and other responsibilities make in-person attendance at meetings impossible, it is possible for a few loud voices in the room to skew public official’s understanding of what the community cares about.

Livestreaming meetings means citizens can learn not only the “what” but the “why” of council decisions. Bonds between council members and citizens form when they can interact in a virtual format rather than simply reading conclusions after the fact. Community engagement is the centerpiece in building a culture of good governance and equitable participation in democratic processes. Join our experts in community governance and live-stream video solutions to help you improve transparency and capitalize on opportunities for increased engagement.
