As we mentioned last time, creating a party planning committee is a great way to get your residents involved. But for some communities, they simply aren’t ready for that, so let’s take an intermediate approach! A great way to get residents to feel like they had a hand to play in the event is to let them vote on the party idea!
This is probably best for the basic theme of the apartment party, so have an internal party planning session with your on-site team to think up some unique and fun party ideas. Then, browse Resident Events and find some other ideas, paring the entire list down to the top 5 event ideas.
The next step is to get your residents to vote on which they like best! There are countless ways to have people vote on something, but I would do a mix of email and Facebook. With email, you can send out a list of all the ideas/links to the ideas. They can either reply to the email to vote, OR set up a “question” through your Facebook Fan Page that allows them to vote there, as well. You might get some duplicate votes, but this isn’t a life or death situation, so it won’t be a huge issue.
