Mecklenburg County wants to know

1 post in this topic

Just an FYI for those who want to get more involved with our county government (and get their voices heard -- really).

Mecklenburg County has created a pilot program called MeckConnect, the purpose of which is to identify what motivates and what inhibits civic involvement in local government and the community. A key feature of the pilot is holding a series of dialogue sessions to learn why people are involved and engaged in civic matters and why they are not. In addition, the pilot intends to determine how motivating factors may vary among people with different backgrounds and/or socio-economic status.

As part of this process, the county wants to talk you and others who are involved in online social networking and with other virtual communities. You don't need any special knowledge to participate. We're just trying to learn how people use online tools to communicate and interact. Sessions will be held Monday, May 12 from 11:30 - 1 pm, and 6:30 to 8 pm at Freedom Park Conference Center. Participants will receive a free catered meal. Space is limited, so if you're interested, e-mail [email protected] by May 8, 2008. Thanks.
