This is an online Zoom Training. The Zoom link will be sent closer to the date of the training.

Nowadays - it seems that everyone has had to embrace virtual ways of staying connected. Whether it is municipalities, institutions, and non-profit organizations - community engagement strategies have had to adjust across the board. The Metropolitan Area Planning Council, MetroBoston's Regional Planning Agency, has also had to make the shift, and their Community Engagement staff have developed this training for engagement practitioners who are actively looking to develop and practice their skills in using tools to increase digital participation.

This training will also allow you to connect with other engagement practitioners who are navigating the new normal of virtual participation. Together we can learn how to utilize methods and strategies to increase the impact and effectiveness of your engagement. If you are hoping to learn about the tools and approaches that will help you engage stakeholders virtually, consider signing up for this training.

The Virtual Community Engagement Training will be taught by the MAPC Community Engagement Division, with instructors Christian Brandt, Emily Torres-Cullinane, and Sasha Parodi.
