October 13 Webinar: Getting Engaged / Staying Engaged

When there's no major public decision in the offing, how do you stay in touch with citizens and keep them engaged? Two researchers at the University of North Carolina are using a blog to keep issues and the people in contact with each other. Join us October 13 as John Stephens and Rick Morse share their insights. (A Canadian co-presenter will be announced shortly.)

Please note: There is a two-stage process for registering. The registration confirmation email you will receive contains a URL. Follow that link to fill in a form and receive your login instructions.
