Involving the public in a planning exercise can be challenging and effortful. Ensuring the public provides the input you want, and actually comes out, isn't about learning techniques.

Attendees to this session will work through exercises to enhance their structuring of public involvement processes. You'll leave the session with a better prepared to work with your community's residents.

The Hands-On Leadership Development opportunity consists of a series of four (4) concurrent sessions. Each session is designed to provide an advanced learning opportunity to planning commissioners and emerging planning professionals alike. The sessions will cover skills related to enhancing attendees capacity as a community leader. Attend these sessions and you'll better understand public finance and budgeting, contracting and procurement, project management, and team-building for effective governance. Attend all sessions and receive a certificate of completion; useful for demonstrating your commitment to excellence in governance and planning administration.
