Top Eight Priorities for Local Governments  

And how resident feedback can help you best focus your efforts

Many characteristics attract people to the cities and towns they choose to live in and make them want to stay. But what features do residents think are most important for their local government to focus on? What do people appreciate about their community? How well do they think public services are performing? The best way to know is to ask.

In this free keynote webinar, Polco / National Research Center (NRC) communications and engagement expert Angelica Wedell will share insights from more than a decade of community survey research. You’ll get highlights from The National Community Survey benchmark database, representing perspectives from hundreds of thousands of residents in more than 500 jurisdictions nationwide.

  • You’ll see what residents in every community want their leaders to prioritize.
  • You’ll also hear examples of how local governments determined a few key drivers of success for their own communities to make remarkable improvements in resident satisfaction.
  • In light of the current coronavirus crisis, we will also discuss local government priorities related to COVID-19.

Keynote speaker Angelica Wedell leads the communications efforts of Polco / NRC. She speaks professionally and facilitates workshops at local government conferences and events around the country, writes guest articles for syndicate sites and journals, and acts as Editor-in-Chief of Polco / NRC’s newsletter The Civil Review.
