Do you know if your P2 programs and campaigns are working? Join us for a 2 day workshop where you will have the opportunity to discuss your actual P2 projects and receive feedback from your peers and the instructor. 

Of all the tools in your Involvement toolbox, none are more important, and often overlooked, as much as assessment and evaluation. A strong assessment and continued evaluation will ensure that your participation program recognizes, and addresses stakeholder needs. This is particularly important on projects with high potential controversy, but can be used to improve any project. This class will strengthen your assessment skills and ensure that ongoing evaluations make your participation program adaptable and effective.

This two-session class — plus scheduled discussion time with the trainer to discuss your projects — will provide the tools to customize your participation plans that reach all affected by decisions, not just the us
ual participants. It will assist you in building trust among your communities and elevate the issues most important to stakeholders into project discussions. 

Cost: $265 member, $355 nonmember $175 student
