Virtual Committees is a safe haven. No citizen can claim they weren't aware—the discussion was literally taking place in the palm of their hand. A balanced discussion from all four sides of the ideological table. Virtual public policy bread breaking is groundbreaking.
If you're looking for a consensus building, decision making tool, Virtual Committees software will do all that with engagement on your citizens' cellphones. It makes the process more like sharing a nice meal with three people who share different views. Listening is good.
Any committee can use the Virtual Committee software to increase citizen engagement. How many people can your town hall hold? What's your population? Your Virtual Committee iFrame "App" can hold more than your Hall—Guaranteed. Gone is the bias of who shows up in the room and talks the longest and/or loudest. Outcomes that can be trusted to be thorough and virtually apolitical. Begin at Agree™ to foster Team USA, Town USA kind of thinking.
Make sure no one is left out by offering 24/7/365 consensus building software to the citizens in your municipality. Engagement doesn't get any better than this.
