Social media tools, communications, databases and other technologies are increasingly being used by planners today in their day-to-day work.  Join us for this one-day conversation that will showcase best practices for how planners are using technology in support of visualization, stakeholder engagement and project management/implementation.

We’re seeking speakers to participate in the day’s program:
  • Have a case study or innovation in using social media that you’d like to share with fellow planners across the Commonwealth?
  • Or do you have some particular challenges with implementing social media that you’d like to talk about, as part of a conversation about overcoming obstacles to using social media?
Submit your Expressions of Interest by Thursday, March 3.  We’ll let you know by Tuesday, March 8 if your proposal has been accepted.
