Event description
Part 2 of our training series on effective participation in local land use decision-making and planning for water resource protection.

About this Event

Background:

POWR is launching a three-part training through which CWO volunteers and leaders will gain the knowledge, understanding, and skills necessary to effectively participate in many local and regional policy, land use and planning efforts occurring throughout the commonwealth. These include meaningful and impactful engagement in Phase 3 WIP implementation; municipal MS4s permit compliance; comprehensive planning efforts; local zoning and subdivision decisions; and other policies that impact local watershed health and sustainability. POWR hopes that by working together, informed citizen and government leaders can make decisions today that will have lasting regional implications for water resource protection tomorrow.

The training will be delivered by POWR staff and guest presenters ‘virtually’ over three Thursdays from 6-7:30 PM. All three sessions will be interactive experiences with presentations, case studies, and group discussions.

This module, #2, will highlight strategies for effective interaction/collaboration with elected officials and will help increase your confidence in communicating your values, concerns, and knowledge about water resource protection and conservation.

The trainings are free, but you must register to receive the link to the training meetings. It is recommended that you register and attend all three ‘live.’ However, the presentations will be recorded so that if you miss one, you can watch the recording, and then join live as your schedule allows.
