Register here

COVID-19 is changing the way planning agencies engage the public. Join 1,000 of your peers to explore how to maintain momentum.

Due to popular demand, our expert panel will return on April 23rd! This webcast will be in LIVE broadcast mode, available by computer audio.

The response to COVID-19 has included several restrictions that limit what’s possible for planning agencies wishing to maintain momentum on community engagement efforts. This peer-to-peer dialog is your opportunity to share your challenges and gather ideas about approaches and techniques to engage safely and effectively during this pandemic.

With the initial shock of March behind us, many planning teams are reimagining public engagement to keep their key projects moving forward during what could be 18 months of disruptions. Our panelists, Shane Sawyer from Virginia Department of Transportation, Stephen Stansbery from Kimley-Horn and Bob Bini, Lancaster County Planning Department, will discuss their strategies to overcome obstacles and maintain momentum on their planning projects.

You’ll play a role in this innovative peer-to-peer exchange webinar as well. Through live polls and Q&A, we’ll learn more about your challenges and gather your ideas for moving engagement forward safely and effectively.
