Communications for Planners at the 2012 (in 2013) NJ APA Conference

Frank Hebbert will speak on a Friday afternoon panel at the 2012 NJ APA Conference. The 2012 APA NJ conference was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy and will take place on Thursday, January 31 and Friday, February 1, 2013.

Frank will be speaking on the panel: Communications for Planners: Strategies and Tools –

Municipalities, planners and developers increasingly need a comprehensive communications strategy and a full suite of implementation tools in order to build support for a project and to address any opposition before it can sideline it. This workshop will outline how to build a strategy and deploy the right tools in order to maximize the chances that an initiative can be brought to fruition. Included will be some basic communications planning exercises, and an overview of social media, crowdsourcing, video, mobile and other technologies that can help get the right messages to the right people.
