Getting the Most Out of Public Hearings: A Guide to Improve Public Involvement
This twelve-page pamphlet provides practical ideas for making public hearings more effective forums for participants and public officials alike. Suggestions include how to add to the diversity of the public’s participation, improve the quality of testimony and communications at hearings, and developing greater public trust in these processes for public decision-making.
