So, what is a Town Hall Meeting?

A Town Hall Meeting is an organization-wide meet in which an executive report is made and then employees or guests have an opportunity to ask questions and engage with business executives. Town Hall Meetings usually begin with a “State of Affairs” presentation and include time for questions and answers. The purpose of a town hall meeting is to allow:

  • Management to keep their team up to date on important information.
  • The team to ask questions of management and give their feedback.
  • Everyone to understand the goals and values of the organization.

Town hall meetings also go by the name of All-Hands meetings. The term “all-hands” captures exactly who needs to attend the town hall meeting. Everyone!
