Engagement from Afield
Couldn’t make it out to Portland for Elevate Engagement but still want to plug in from a distance? We’ve lined up a few ways to participate both asynchronously or synchronously.
- Twitter – Follow and join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #PDXengage17.
- Experience Engagement Facebook Group – Expanding on the Facebook group from our 2015 gathering, we’ll upload photos to this group.
Thursday, May 18 at 6 p.m. PT

We’ll be using an exciting new engagement tool from the creators of Civil Comments: Civil Live. With this new technology, we’ll be able to solicit questions or thoughts from you in advance and in real time. You can join those in the room to upvote the questions and ideas to bring to the conversation. Keep an eye on this page Friday evening.
