BridgeDetroit has formed a Community Advisory Committee to provide input and guidance on BridgeDetroit journalism, engagement, and collaboration strategies. The Community Advisory Committee will issue an annual assessment of BridgeDetroit management and collaborate with the BridgeDetroit team on an annual public report to the community assessing the project’s overall performance, with particular attention on key success metrics of audience reach and growth, community engagement, trust and satisfaction, and media collaborations.
