How can social media make government more transparent, while minimizing legal risk and ensuring long-term transparency? With the evolution of communication technologies, interactions with your agency's constituents are no longer just one-way. But how can your agency best leverage the fluid, flexible communications found on sites such as Facebook & Twitter while also complying with legal requirements?

Government agencies are leveraging social media in numerous ways from policy discussions and economic development to emergency response and citizen feedback.

Discover how to integrate social media with your broader communications efforts, and also mitigate the potential risks associated with an open, online dialogue. Join us for an interactive webinar to learn how to:

  •     Integrate social media into your broader digital strategy
  •     Proactively eliminate barriers to social media adoption
  •     Implement efficient record keeping technologies
  •     Maintain compliance with public record laws
