Community Engagement - Local Govt. Orgs

I've been intrigued with ICMA's upcoming conference in which an entire track is dedicated to engaging citizens in civic engagement. One of the speakers will be using the Allliance for Innovation study on the need to engage citizens in the democratic process and the role of local governemtnts (A.K.A. libraries) in doing that. This is the right speaker to involve in the PLA preconference. We should be attending the ICMA conference! (It's $1,000 to attend.)
