Telling Your Story and Making it Count

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Who knew? Your city/town has so much to share with the world. It is rich with arts, culture and history, but how do you let people know? The power of evaluation is key to unlocking these treasures. Counting, surveying, and researching will give you the tools you need to tell your story, increase public awareness and empower your community to celebrate its uniqueness. This session will help you identify the necessary information you need to tell your story and promote your city/town.
