General session: Times are uncivil and residents don’t want to engage: How do we fix it?
Polarization in the political process and among elected officials is more contentious than ever before, and it’s making governing hard. Effective decision-making depends on collaboration and inclusive public engagement. Government works best when a well-informed community takes part in the process. This session shows you how to get there using best practices.
