Session 4 - Webinar - Leading Community Engagement - Thursday, August 18th - 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

The public has always been actively involved at their local park district, forest preserve, conservation, recreation or special recreation agency. The public participation process sometimes goes smoothly, but at times fails to reach its intended goals for a variety of reasons. If the issue being discussed by the public is contentious, the dialogue can quickly turn heated if not managed properly. This webinar will focus on one of the most powerful techniques available in the public participation process. Appreciative Inquiry (AI) is transformational in its approach to solving community challenges. When used properly, even the most ardent nay-sayers can see a vision differently.

Learning Transformations:

  • Participants will learn the practical application of AI and the power it has in bringing about change.
  • The public, when actively engaged, will deepen their appreciation for the services the agency brings to their lives and community.
  • Participants will develop the basic skill set needed to conduct a public meeting using the AI process.

Registration Fee: $50 Members / $125 Non-Members (0.1 CEUs $6)
