Two Upcoming Webinars: Transportation & Disaster Recovery and Communication Strategies

Posted on: May 30th, 2012 by Carrie Kissel

NADO and its partners are hosting two free training webinars on different topics in the next two weeks.

On Thursday, June 7 at 2 p.m. EDT, the NADO Research Foundation will hold Lessons Learned from Irene: RPC Involvement in Recovery of Vermont’s Transportation Network.  Two regional planners from organizations in Vermont will discuss the steps the state’s regional planning commissions took to address the devastating results of intense rainfall occurring from Tropical Storm Irene. This webinar will focus on how the lessons learned in Vermont can help other regional planning and development organizations be a valuable asset in future disaster recovery for transportation infrastructure. The event is approved for 1 AICP CM credit.

Then, on Tuesday, June 12 at 1 p.m. EDT, The National Association of Counties (http://www NULL.naco NULL.org/Pages/default NULL.aspx) (NACo), in partnership with the NADO Research Foundation, is hosting Framing the Issue: Communication Strategies for Planning Processes.  During this interactive online training, participants will learn techniques to develop effective community engagement techniques for their planning programs. Presenters will share recommendations for getting the message out via traditional and social media, and strategies for communicating with the general public. Participants will engage in interactive role-play exercises to test these new skills. NADO and NACo are applying to offer AICP CM credits for this webinar.

Registration for all of these webinars is free but must be completed in advance.
