The City of Asheville’s Office of Data & Performance (ODAP) will hold a community data training on Saturday, June 17, 2023, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. The training will be held at the City’s municipal building at 100 Court Plaza, Asheville, in the second-floor training room. Limited parking is available in the City Hall parking lot.
The training will focus on introducing the community to the data resources available on the City of Asheville’s website. It will be conducted by City staff responsible for the resources that will be highlighted. The training was developed after ODAP staff conducted information-gathering interviews with community members and service providers in the summer of 2021, many expressed a desire to know how to access City-related data available to them on the website.
The goal of the community data training is to promote transparency through data accessibility as an organization, advance the conversation regarding data use in the community, as well as encourage community use of the City’s website.
The training is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is required. For more information, contact the Office of Data& Performance at Office of Data & Performance Office of Data & Performance firstname.lastname@example.org.
