  ConnectWI is a LOCAL GOVERNMENT WEBSITE RECOGNITION - a non-partisan project to promote TRANSPARENCY AND EASY PUBLIC ACCESS TO INFORMATION for governing bodies, elected officials, and public meetings.

Wisconsin is home to 2,350 local elected bodies - city councils, county boards, village boards, town boards and school boards - with a combined total of more than 13,000 elected officials. For citizens, finding information about who represents them and how to participate in the proceedings of local government bodies can be a daunting task.

The ConnectWI Recognition for a Wisconsin Local Government Official Web Site recognizes excellence in providing easily accessible and timely information on local elected officials, and opportunities to participate in and learn about the workings of public decision-making bodies such as boards and committees - key elements in ensuring citizen participation and the democratic process.

Any Wisconsin county, city, village, town or school district government may apply for ConnectWI Recognition. Recipients are asked to place the ConnectWI logo on their local government web site.

Applications are accepted on an open basis. Recognitions will be announced quarterly and be listed on the ConnectWI web site. Applications will be processed within 120 days of submission. Applications take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
