Webinar Description

Given the limitations posed by COVID-19, many towns are approaching their town meeting in new ways this year. Towns that will vote by Australian Ballot must hold informational hearings in advance to discuss the warned articles. This training reviews legal requirements, provides helpful and practical tips, and include strategies for hosting online informational hearings. It also has a quick overview of facilitation techniques and logistical and technical issues to take into consideration.
