Engagement is more important than ever
Decision-makers are realizing more and more that including the public in their decisions improves the quality and acceptance of the decisions they make. Added is the increasing desire of the public to get their voices heard on issues that are important to them.
With the dramatic rise in access to information through a wide range of media and the new voices of citizens that want to be more involved, public engagement is becoming much more of a must-do rather than a should-do.
Call us today if you would like to discuss an upcoming public engagement project or if you would like to discuss how your organization can ramp up your public engagement programming.
