Public meetings are a vital component of all effective governments. Providing convenient, easy access via live streaming and/or archived video can have a huge impact on citizen engagement and satisfaction.
Whether your elected officials meet weekly or monthly, one board or dozens, residents across your community are interested in the issues at hand. Recording your meetings and sharing them on your official website can open up lines of communication with residents who are unable to attend meetings in person.
Advances in technology have made it possible to stream your meetings live with little more than a smart phone, WiFi, and a YouTube account. Built-in transcripts make your videos accessible to hearing impaired visitors and provide a quick search option to help residents skip to the topics that interest them most.
