101 questions to guide your team to success!

Ever wonder why some VPI efforts sizzle and others fizzle? 

Over the past few years, virtual public involvement (VPI) has become essential to every public engagement process. In response, MetroQuest partnered with American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), Association of Metropolitan Planning Organizations (AMPO), Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS) to unbundle the keys to successful VPI in a series of peer-to-peer forums with DOTs, MPOs and planning and public involvement consulting teams from across the country.  

This webinar will uncover the 101 guiding questions that teams should consider throughout the planning, engagement and reporting phases to guide your team to great results in every project.  

How many of the 101 questions have you considered? 

Join us in a conversation with Dave Biggs, Chief Engagement Officer at MetroQuest, and Emily Margitan, one of MetroQuest’s Customer Success Managers, as they share key lessons from this peer-to-peer process and introduce the Checklist for Success. They will take a deep dive into the best strategies when planning and designing your VPI approach, promotional strategies to maximize participation and diversity, and explain how to effectively summarize results in a digestible manner using case study examples of exceptional surveys from top agencies and firms with strong VPI efforts and excellent results! 

In this webinar, we will explore:

  • Key guiding questions to ask during your next project
  • Best practices and tools needed for successful VPI
  • Real life examples from top agencies and firms
