Time: 2:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
Cities and counties across the country have been focusing for years on citizen engagement as a means to create stronger, more resilient, and more profitable communities with mixed outcomes. We questioned why citizen engagement has become so central to local government leadership, and what we found will surprise you—because engagement is only a small component to the real key of creating strong communities.
What local leaders really need to focus on is civic experience. In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- What does civic experience mean?
- How is it different (and why is it more important) than citizen engagement?
- What you need as an institutional foundation to achieve positive civic experiences in your community
- How to shift your mindset (and those of your department leaders) to begin prioritizing civic experience in your administration
