The most effective approach to building key relationships is to turn your citizens into advocates. Empower them to speak and open a direct dialogue# on your turf - instead of out in the wild.

In 2009, President Obama called for “a process through which every government worker can submit their ideas for how their agency can save money and perform better.” Over the past four years, the President’s SAVE (Securing Americans’ Value and Efficiency) Award fulfilled this commitment by enabling Federal employees from across the government to submit their ideas for efficiencies and savings as part of the annual Budget process.
Earlier this summer, we asked the public to contribute to the Mars dialog through this forum. Your enthusiastic response was beyond our expectations - over 1,200 people signed up, participated, asked questions, voted, commented and engaged in a dialogue about the future of Mars exploration. The strong response hinted that the public was even more interested in exploring Mars than we thought, and the interest in Curiosity proved it, as millions tuned in to watch what we affectionately call "The 7 Minutes of Terror."
