New app features unveiled

The Association's app for the February 4 Hometown Legislative Action Day will have a significant new feature.

"The most requested feature we have been asked about is the ability to get presentations and other meeting documents directly from the app," said Mary Brantner, communications manager for the Municipal Association. "Beginning with this year's HLAD, Association staff can upload PDFs, PowerPoint presentations, Word documents and other file formats. Attendees can then download the presentations and handouts directly from the app."


"Similar to last year's HLAD and Annual Meeting, our attendees can create a profile then post pictures of their meetings with legislators and comments about the sessions," continued Brantner. "We will have a big display in the lobby showing the pictures, comments and 'likes' in real time."
In addition to the "social" aspect, the app has the HLAD agenda with speaker information, a list of attendees, and a map of restaurants close to the Marriott. The map also lists the alternate parking garage at 1200 Taylor Street.
The app is free and can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play. Those who have previously downloaded the app do not have to do so again. When accessed, the app will prompt an update.
Want to learn more or need help accessing the app? Staff members will be available in the atrium at the Marriott to provide one-on-one assistance on February 4.
