Chinook is partnering with the Oregon Chapter of the American Planning Association, Emerging Local Government Leaders, & TriMet to bring you a great learning opportunity. Join us in Portland to learn about how to get meaningful citizen input. This is an encore of the very successful event held in Salem in September!
“Breaking down barriers to involvement of diverse populations in our public process.”
Date: Thursday, January 29, 2015
Time: 12:00 to 1:30 pm
Location: TriMet’s Harrison Square Offices, 1800 SW 1st Avenue, Portland
Cost: Free! Bring your own lunch, but please RSVP.
We count on the community to be engaged and make meaningful input in our various public processes, yet we don’t always get the broad based involvement that could greatly help. We often miss the mark on attracting people from diverse elements of our community to participate and contribute.
Join us as we hear from Emmett Wheatfall, Director of Diversity and Inclusion for Clackamas County, as he tells about his experiences and shares his insights on what works and what doesn’t. Then, the group will engage in a broad discussion with questions to Emmett and group sharing of experiences and ideas. Everyone should leave lunch with better knowledge, understanding, and tools for creating better engagement processes for the WHOLE community.
