Conducting Effective Public Meetings


Meetings are the means by which a person or group can exercise choice and affect outcomes. Generally, there are two different types of meetings that a local government will focus on. One general type is decision or policy-making meetings. Another is information-sharing meetings, which are used either to get public comments or as brainstorming work sessions. The purpose of meetings is to hear from all concerned parties and ensure that all opinions are considered in the decision-making process.
