Music to the ears of PR practitioners

This week in the Ascentum blog, a team member writes about President Obama’s Memorandum on Transparency and Open Government. To achieve this transparency Obama has created a system of three levels; transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Being a Public Relations student the most exciting term used is “public participation”.

“Executive departments and agencies should also solicit public input on how we can increase and improve opportunities for public participation in Government.” Barack Obama

It will be interesting to see how they will receive this feedback from the public and promote two-way communication.
