The series will provide local units of government (including local elected officials, administrators/managers, department heads, and staff) with creative methods for engaging residents in public meetings and help them think through the selection of the best process and level of engagement.
These four highly interactive Zoom webinars on the power of participation will help local leaders learn the purpose for public engagement, select tools to reach diverse stakeholders, and practice ways to interact effectively with residents within the framework of the Open Meetings Act.
Below is the webinar schedule. All events will take place from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. EST.
- July 14: Why do Public Participation? The Importance of Actively Engaging the Public.
- July 16: Who is "The Public"? Identifying Stakeholders and Understanding Bias.
- July 21: How to Select the Right Strategy Part 1: Following the Open Meetings Act.
- July 23: How to Select the Right Strategy Part 2: Being Strategic and Creative.
Registration is available online. Cost to attend is $5 per webinar or register for all four for $20. These webinars have been approved for four continuing education hours by the AIA, four certificate maintenance credits by the AICP, four professional development hours by the ASLA, and four continuing education units by Michigan Citizen Planner.
