The social platform that brings town hall meetings to an accessible and interactive level has opened for business. CrowdHall recently opened to early users, adding more town halls continually.
“Users can go on and interact, but they can also submit and vote on who they want to join,” said Jordan Menzel, CrowdHall co-founder. “Anyone can easily host an efficient, crowd-sourced town hall with their online audience.”
With election season in full swing, political candidates have been taking advantage of the open CrowdHall forum, including Utah candidate for U.S. Senate, Scott Howell.
“Coming from 34 years experience in the private sector at IBM, I’ve seen firsthand the power and role technology can play in bringing efficiency and innovation in all aspects of life. That’s one of the reasons we were excited to partner with Crowdhall and be the first campaign in the state of Utah to utilize their product. We’ve already seen how this tool encourages engagement and helps to build voter awareness about key issues. It’s a unique blend of tech-savviness and democracy in action,” said Howell.
Throughout the next few weeks, new features and more campaigns will be rolled out on CrowdHall, Menzel said. Among current and active town halls are USAID and Columbia University’s Earth Institute.
The Earth Institute has a forum which includes three town halls to narrow down the focus of the event, including one dedicated to crowdsourcing solutions for current global challenges and another featuring Harvard economist Jeff Sachs.
Menzel encourages people to sign in and let them know which people they would like to hear from on CrowdHall.
