Transforming Town Meetings with Teletownhalls


Sale price Free

In this webinar you will learn how to engage your under-engaged citizens with Telephone Town Hall Meeting’s (TTHM) phone technology which will call thousands of your citizens…in seconds…at one time and connect them to a live forum with your elected officials and subject matter experts.  This is like talk radio on the phone where your citizens will ask questions of your elected officials, vote in surveys, and get flagged for personalized follow up. 

TTHM’s connect with 250 times the number of citizens as an in-person public meeting and let’s face it, your citizens don’t want to leave their house to engage with their elected officials.  You can reach them on a technology that every one of your citizens knows how to use…their telephone!

Many cities use TTHM to discuss proposed budgets, upcoming bond initiatives, changes in city services, or planned infrastructure improvements and most importantly, to listen to their citizens.  For many citizens fighting loneliness and isolation, TTHM forums are one of the few calls they answer in a week.  They look forward to these entertaining and informative calls, putting them on their calendar hanging next to the refrigerator and listening for the whole hour.  Many citizens will not ask a question but listen to the show and learning something about their community.

Over 78% of TTHM forum participants report having a positive impression of the elected official that called them.  In the municipal government world, that translates into happier well-informed citizens.

This low-tech, low barrier to entry telephone tool is a super-charged addition to your public engagement toolbox and community satisfaction strategy.

This webinar is complimentary thanks to the sponsorship of Telephone Town Hall Meeting who will have access to registration information.
