What is a Tele-Town Hall?
A Tele-Town Hall allows us to communicate with thousands of people instantly. It’s a live, interactive format, which allows us to share important information, educate and train, answer live questions, and ask participants questions with multiple choices. At the conclusion of each event, participants may record their comments for post-event review and follow up. If you miss the invitation call, you can call in later by dialing 877-229-8493 and enter i.d. code 111563.
How it works
Two to three days before the event an automated message will go out informing people to “save the date” for the next Tele-Town Hall. The night of the Tele-Town Hall another message will go out, those who answer the call will be encouraged to stay on the line and join the call. If an answering machine picks up, the recording explains the purpose of the call and provides a toll free number to join the call. The Tele-Town Hall begins moments after the first listeners join the event. As others join in, they will hear the conversation already in progress. Moderated by our Executive Director, Greg Thompson, and joined by guest speakers, the call is similar to that of a radio talk show. A recorded copy in the form of a data or music cd can be requested if you missed the call, and it will be posted to our website on the video page two to three weeks after the event date.

April 18th, Tele-Town Hall – Our first Town Hall
On April 18, 2013 Executive Director Greg Thompson was joined by Assembly member Holly Mitchell in an effort to educate the community about the 8% reduction in IHSS hours, the new Cal MediConnect Program that will affect Los Angeles County IHSS recipients, along with Medi-Cal and Medicare recipients.
HUGE SUCCESS!! The call was amazing and connected with 3,900 people that evening. We would like to thank everyone who joined the call, and appreciate all of the comments and questions that were left for the PASC staff.
