One of the functions of SEWRPC is to help educate elected officials, local government staff members, and members of the general public on a variety of matters that pertain to the preparation of regional plan elements and the implementation of those plan elements by other governmental units and agencies. Toward this end, SEWRPC staff members make numerous appearances at county and local government meetings, in classrooms at public schools, colleges and universities, and at meetings of interest groups of various kinds. Representative examples of these types of activities are included in each Commission Annual Report. From time-to-time the Commission also sponsors regional planning conferences and works with other agencies and organizations to sponsor a variety of events that are intended to educate the general public on matters of developmental and environmental concern.
To schedule a SEWRPC staff appearance for these purposes, please contact one of the following individuals:
