We were hired by a city pension system at the beginning of the Detroit bankruptcy to take them through it, including member support and successful voting for accepting of the Plan of Adjustment (POA). Our proprietary Strategic Communication Management Plan included an extensive range of strategies and tools. We re-designed and re-built their web site to be more user-friendly and to communicate urgent information on a nearly real-time basis.
We provided a complete set of services from 24-7 national and international news media relations to town halls and strategic counsel. Our extensive town halls and the supportive community activities resulted in the members voting in favor of the POA even with a reduction in benefits. We are continuing with town halls and digital updates as members continue to sort through the changes.
