Synopsis

Presented by NLC Enterprise Partner Polco
Gift Card Drawing and Breakfast at Session

How can elected officials feel confident that community feedback and survey results truly represent their entire adult population? This is a top concern for local governments everywhere, especially for those leaders of diverse communities who worry about receiving participation from their less engaged demographics. We know the hardest to reach populations tend to be racial and ethnic minorities, youth, lower income residents, undocumented residents, and folks whose first language is not English. These residents are often the most in need of local government services, and it is crucial that their voices are heard. Yet, encouraging them to engage can fail without a smart, strong effort. Join Polco / National Research Center, Inc. (NRC) civic engagement and survey research experts to hear the most effective ways to get more participation from hard-to-reach residents. You’ll also learn from Texas Southern University (TSU) professors and municipal thought-leaders; discover the most important lessons from the Democratic Debate recently held at this Historically Black College / University (HBCU).
