Engaging Your Community with MindMixer
May 21 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time
Mission Statement: We believe good, informed ideas are out there, but many don’t make it to the surface or are drowned out by the volume of usual voices. Leveraging the power of the Internet and social media, MindMixer helps organizations connect with community members who might not otherwise get involved.
Why they started: It’s hard to get the community involved when the community can’t come to meetings. That’s where we got the idea for MindMixer. We wanted to create a place where people can have a more meaningful conversation with their leaders and peers. Where they want, when they want. Online.
We believe in what we do: The best part about what we do is that we’re meeting people every day who are just as excited as we are. Technology is constantly changing the way we communicate, and cities, schools, hospitals and organizations are responding.
This is a thrilling time for community participation.
