Power of Participation Webinar Series

The Power of Participation Webinar Series is a series of four highly interactive Zoom webinars that will help local leaders learn the purpose for public engagement, select tools to reach diverse stakeholders, and practice ways to interact effectively with residents within the framework of the Open Meetings Act.

The series, co-hosted by MSU Extension and the National Charrette Institute, will provide local units of government (including local elected officials, administrators/managers, department heads, and staff) with creative methods for engaging residents in public meetings and help them think through the selection of the best process and level of engagement.
