Community Engagement in Government

Local, state, provincial and federal governments around the world are getting more people involved in planning projects, city development and community consultations through online engagement. Bringing the conversation online, government organizations can broaden their audience for a more complete sampling of public opinion. By empowering residents with an easy and secure way to participate online, organizations build community capacity and improve democracy as a whole.

“We have noticed, over the last few years, the need for a deeper conversation – beyond likes and shares – about issues facing the city. [EngagementHQ] provides the necessary tools. It’s conversational, timely, and easy-to-use.”
– Kent Wyatt, Tigard
