Engage Your Local Government – In Person

Like SpeakupAustin!, the City of Austin is opening new avenues to let it’s citizens be heard. This one has a distinct advantage: meetings are face-to-face, but not in the formal framework of a City Council Meeting. And they’re coming to your neighborhood!

From the City of Austin:

“Conversation Corps has scheduled its first 12 discussions offering citizens the opportunity to engage with their local government.

These conversations are a joint effort between the City of Austin, Austin Independent School District, Capital Metro and Leadership Austin. This will be an ongoing program that will provide regular opportunities for citizens to have hosted discussions about local government.

This first round of conversations will take place over the course of two weeks. The topic will be “How can Conversation Corps add value to our community?” These discussions will seek input from participants about the issues they’d like to see as future conversation topics.
