Engineers, Land Surveyors, and related professionals who often speak at public hearings and meetings on behalf of their clients, need to be assured that the presentation does the job. Now you can join us for a special 3 part series on techniques for presenting at community meetings and to public boards and commissions.

This unique professional development program is ideal for participants who regularly appear before public boards and want to polish their skills and enhance their effectiveness. Effective presentations can increase your success in winning the permits or approvals you need to move projects forward.

We are offering a distinctive format. The first two sessions provide specific, proven techniques via lively lecture and practice workshops. The third session is a dynamic role-playing: presentation with Q&A. TECET Board members will act as the town board or community members for your presentation.
