Granicus’ “2021 govMeetings Benchmark Report” highlights how agencies are creating convenient and functional tools for residents, board members, and staff to save time and reduce frustration when dealing with public meetings.
Thanks to digital tools such as govMeetings, common needs such as service and records requests are increasingly met with automated functions, interactive video streaming encourages easier participation in public discourse, and digital integration continues to revolutionize how governments and residents interact.
The Benchmark Report provides a baseline on such important areas as:
- Use of video tools, including number of meeting hours recorded
- Indexing videos to assist with research and searchability
- Captioning services to expand access to more residents
- Public engagement
- And more
Public meetings continue to be a critical area where the relationship between community awareness and engagement helps effectively navigate crises as they arise and evolve. See how your organization public meetings’ efforts stand against our data.
