Public | Meetings

An open meetings solution designed for both in-person and virtual attendees with equity, access, and transparent record-keeping at the forefront.

Make Your Public Meetings Open and Accessible to All

Public | Meetings support the continuity of local government and drive public engagement by allowing you to offer multiple options — in-person, virtual and hybrid — for all your public meetings. Hybrid public meetings require additional technology and staff to meet legal compliance and to ensure smooth and orderly deliberations.

Keep equity, access, and record-keeping at the forefront for every public meeting by:

Allowing the public to participate from outside your video conference, so that your meetings are always equitable and secure.
Offering real-time, multilingual closed captions for livestreamed public meetings supporting over 108 languages.

Ensuring legal compliance by offering numerous participation formats, like phone lines, live streams, and texts.

Put more resources towards a quality public engagement experience for residents by:

Cut costs with auto transcription and comment management directly within the meeting dashboard.
Permanently store meeting history and participant information in the dashboard, synchronized with all other public engagement in your community.

Mayor of Virginia Beach

“Public Input makes it easy for us to coordinate our public engagement activities and it allows us to do many of the same activities we would do in an in person Open House, but virtual and longer for the community members to respond.”

Paul Cancilla

H2M

“What I love about PublicInput is the flexibility, creativity, customer service, planning and customization it allows for all of the different subject matter projects I work on. Building up the communities engagement where they are — PublicInput helps me to engage people whether it's texting, social media, email, online. People are only going to be accessible where they are comfortable and PublicInput gives me the tools to be where people are spending most of their time. Because they certainly aren't coming out to meetings in the evenings like they were 25 years ago.”

“PublicInput has been a key resource for us during COVID-19. It has allowed us to engage with our community and partners effectively. We have gotten a lot of good feedback from the citizens of the town that they really appreciate this platform and that it has made them feel more involved. Customer service has been incomparable. The responses are always quick, and the staff is thoroughly educated on the software. Not to mention they are always kind and make you feel like a priority!”
