It is an exciting time at PlaceSpeak and 2015 has been an amazing year. We would like to thank our customers, participants and partners who continue engaging and improving the democratic process through legitimate online consultation.

In the final newsletter of the year we look back on our highlights, look forward to 2016 with the launch of our "In Conversation With" series where we talk to the most innovative leaders in urbanism, public engagement, and civic technology. 

We also share 5 public participation tips we picked up during IAP2 training and highlight our brand new homepage.

From the PlaceSpeak team to you and yours, a very Happy Holidays!
