Why you need to attend…
The growing social media use in local government and the interaction between citizens and government via government websites is having a profound impact on the way we communicate and manage community expectations.
Social media is no longer simply another channel to communicate and engage with communities. Community activism; demands for more transparency and accountability, and the pressure to be more responsive, are cause to reflect how local governments manage and control communications in a fast-paced world.
This forum Managing Social Media Impacts is designed to explore current issues related to social media in a local government context and provide an opportunity to hear from a range of experienced practitioners and experts.
