Brian Blackford’s presentation at the 2023 IDEA Conference was so well received, we’re bringing him back to share “Beyond Meetings: Tips and Tools for Better Community Outreach” with the NLC.
Engaging community members is more important, and more challenging, than ever. Simply hosting a town hall or settling for insights from the usual suspects is no longer sufficient. During this interactive session, participants review why community engagement matters and consider creative ways to make it more practical, productive, and meaningful.
