The OpenGovChicago(-land) meetup is back with a return to its roots.
The next meetup will be the first in a new series that focuses on learning about and helping grassroots groups that interact with official government functions.
First up is the Park District Advisory Council. There are 194 advisory councils covering the entire city, and they are populated by regular Chicago residents who care about their neighborhoods. We will hear from people who run these councils, find out what kind of data and technology they use, and figure out we can help.
If you serve on a Council, or know someone who does, let us know in the RSVP— the more, the merrier. More details on speakers and agenda to follow. As always, we’ll be streaming the event on our YouTube Channel.
