29 July Tech Lab Pgm Features EngagingPlans - Online Engmt Websites

Our Friday 29 July Tech Lab program features EngagingPlans from UrbanInteractiveStudio (UIS)

Join us to learn more about the EngagingPlans online tool and to hear tips about successful online engagement based on Chris Haller's experience working with agencies and nonprofits.

EngagingPlans is an online engagement solution tailored to practitioners’ needs, something that’s rare in today’s world of one-size-fits-all web applications. It solves the dilemma that many organizations face as communication moves increasingly online and more citizens expect the convenience of having information available on the web. 

Agencies are recognizing the value of online communication among stakeholders, citizens, and decision-makers, but often can’t afford the financial or administrative output required to maintain an effective web presence dedicated to a specific engagement project. EngagingPlans enables the rapid launch of an interactive website and engagement management system, with minimal effort and no special technical skills required.
