Public Meetings SOS 2.0: December 1, 2010 in Salem, OR

This just in from our friends with the IAP2 Cascade Chapter (Oregon and Southern Washington State):

Hello IAP2 members and friends,

Join the region’s leading public involvement pros and see how they’re doing more with less using on-line and off-line tools and old fashioned ingenuity. Stakeholders are seeking more engagement and input on projects and policy-making, even as budgets are stretched and resources are shrinking. This workshop offers expertise, advice, demonstrations, and plenty of interaction with the experts to ground truth your ideas and quell your fears! Only $35.00 per person.

A simple, easy way to engage the public or small groups of neighbors on their own turf.
Lance Robertson, Public Affairs Manager, Eugene Water & Electric Board

Building Community with Road Blocks
Engaging citizens in environmental issues using interactive, low-cost block parties.
Keri M. Handaly and Jamie Stamberger, City of Gresham Watershed Division

Immediate and Visual
Old and new tools that catch the eye, “show” new concepts and create community interest.
Rhetta Drennan, Community Relations, City of Portland Environmental Services

Social Media for LOIS and Water Partnership
Successes and challenges for Lake Oswego Interceptor Sewer (LOIS) and LO-Tigard Water Partnership.
Jeff Selby, Citizen Information Coordinator, City of Lake Oswego

Build-a-System Tool
Mobile meetings with wireless laptops cost less than open houses for long-range planning.
Kristin Hull, Project Manager, CH2M Hill

Public Involvement Video for Dummies: Taking the Mystery Out of Video Production
Shoot and post online videos for stakeholder engagement, virtual project tours and more.
Kalin Schmoldt and Sam Beresky, JLA Public Involvement

The event will be held Wednesday, December 1, 2010 from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM PST, at the Mission Mill Museum (Dye House), 1313 Mill Street SE, Salem, OR 9730. After the workshop, complimentary refreshments will be served.

Sounds like a great program. To attend, simply register online.

Fun fact: Oregon is the state with the highest number of IAP2 members in the US (74 as of September 2010). For years, Cascade has been one of the largest and most active chapters. For chapter contact information (incl. Facebook and their email newsletter), check our list of US chapters.

    Thanks, Sheri. Happy to get the word out!

    SRO = standing room only? 😉
