Seats are still available for the Power of Participation Webinar Series event that we’re co-hosting with MSU Extension. So, be sure to register today to reserve your space! 

The series 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. 

These four highly interactive Zoom webinars on the power of participation 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. 

Below is the webinar schedule. All events will take place from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. EST. 

Registration is available online. Cost to attend is $5 per webinar or register for all four for $20. These webinars have been approved for four continuing education hours by the AIA, four certificate maintenance credits by the AICP, four professional development hours by the ASLA, and four continuing education units by Michigan Citizen Planner.
