In local government, we often struggle to “toot our own horns” for a variety of reasons. At the same time, we’re in the midst of a global trend where citizens are demanding transparency and pathways to participation. Attempts to accommodate these requests are creating more demands on our already overburdened staff.

 This webinar will walk you through a simple story-telling framework and process that will address both of these needs by helping communities tell their story while also sharing progress on goals or if they do not have any goals, using existing data points to begin to create a foundation of a story on the overall health and quality of life of the community. Through this webinar, participants will:

  • Understand why lack of budget and staff are no longer an acceptable reason not to focus on creating a healthy, engaged community

  • Learn how using data points that already exist can create the foundation for a solid community program

  • Identify ways to engage your community to be part of reaching your goals, not just establishing them
