Messaging Matters.Do listeners hear you, or shut you out?
Do you get frustrated when communicating about affordable housing? And, about the unmet need for it?
A small group of people in the Housing Coordinating Team have been exploring possible solutions for awhile and have some research and some ideas, for starters, but would like to have an ongoing, statewide, collaborative working group. We would like to go over the results of this survey at the next HCT meeting on Friday, April 13 at 9:00am. Click here for more information and to register for the meeting webinar. We will also offer a call to action, to join us at the 2018 Housing Conference for a session "Messaging: Using Montana Values to Explain What We Do and Why". It is at this session that we will discuss why we encounter road blocks and ways to go around them. We may also have the start of a toolbox of templates for various PR and Marketing materials that will be available to anyone who needs them.
We believe that with the right message and with the collective power of all of us, across the state, repeating the same messages, that we can be heard and that there is hope that we can make real change happen. Please help us understand what problems you encounter and whether you would be interested in working on a solution with our group.
