What could be more grassroots and personal than a town hall meeting? It hearkens to a bygone era, but Front Porch Strategies brings town hall meetings into modern focus. A virtual town hall meeting is a basically a very large conference call that personally connects your office or campaign to thousands of people at once.

How it works:
1. An automated call is sent to your list with a message from the host inviting people to join a town hall meeting by simply staying on the line.
2. The person on the other end of the line is immediately connected to the meeting where the host discusses issues of importance and invites audience questions.
3. Call participants who have a question speak personally to a call screener who, at the appropriate time, connects the participant with the host who already has seen the screener’s notes in advance.

Virtual town hall meetings give people who may not have the time, money, or inclination to travel in person to a meeting, the opportunity to engage a candidate or elected official in a one-on-one, meaningful discussion. This kind of personal interaction can make the difference between victory and defeat on a political campaign, and greatly enhances the interaction between an elected official and their constituency.
