July 27, 2020
02:00 pm - 03:00 pm CT


Registration closed.


City Halls across the country are mostly empty, but the collaborative work of local government needs to continue. Are you asking how to move innovation and team projects forward in this new virtual workspace?

Alliance for Innovation member organizations only. Not sure if your organization is a member? Check here. 

Taught by HueLife, attendees will explore various approaches and methodologies of virtual engagement. This series of highly engaging hands on sessions will provide opportunities to both see and practice various facilitation methods. In each session attendees will see a method modeled and then learn HOW to operate virtual engagement. Each of these sessions will be fully participative, therefore registration will be limited to 24 attendees to provide maximum practice time for each registrant.
