Event Information

http://planningpa.org/wp-content/uploads/gravity_forms/2-bbf484a7b225af784e785741ac5ede14/2014/04/dvrpc_logo_color.jpgWhether you work for local government, a Business Improvement District, or another local organization, effective communication with your constituents is essential. These days, much of our communication takes place online—either through websites or social media. How can you ensure that your constituents find the information they seek quickly and effectively? How can you use social media more effectively given time and budget constraints? We will discuss these questions and more.

DVRPC’s Strategies for Older Suburbs Roundtable Series highlights challenges older suburbs and downtowns are facing and provides an opportunity to network and exchange ideas with communities facing similar concerns. This roundtable discussion will feature presentations on effective municipal websites and social media tactics followed by a peer discussion.
