9th Annual Best Practices in Public Participation for Transmission Projects
Event Description and Agenda:
Transmission infrastructure projects are often characterized by high perceived risk and low stakeholder trust. A balance must be struck between the need for additional transmission development and landowner priorities, environmental impact considerations and regulatory compliance.
A comprehensive strategic public participation process is a key tenet to the success of any transmission siting project. All stakeholders must be engaged throughout the process, using a wide variety of communication and engagement techniques that are tailored to the needs of each stakeholder. But how do you tackle this daunting challenge?
As an attendee of this conference, you will hear best practice case studies from leading electric transmission professionals, and the strategies and methods they use to positively engage stakeholders and overcome project obstacles. You will leave with practical tools and techniques that can be immediately implemented within your own organization to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your public participation program.
