Join DVRPC for a #BG2021 webinar entitled


What will meetings look like? Will hybrid meetings be the new norm? Panelists will discuss what they learned during the COVID19 pandemic.

Local governments and organizations were forced to transition in-person meetings to online, seemingly overnight, due COVID-19 restrictions and stay-at-home orders. Many people learned new tools and technologies in order to continue to work and support their constituents. Panelists will discuss what they have learned this past year, including strategies for making meetings more equitable and engaging for their audiences. They will also discuss the future of meetings, and whether hybrid meetings (offering both in-person and online options) will be the new norm.


Moderated by Elise Turner, MPA, Associate Manager, Office of Communications & Engagement, DVRPC.

Panelists include:

Shoshana Akins, MPH, Senior Public Participation Planner, Office of Communications & Engagement, DVRPC

Jennifer Rodriguez,President & CEO, Greater Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

Nick Valla, MPA, Assistant Township Manager, Middletown Township, Bucks County, PA


This is one in a series of six webinars, organized as part of DVRPC’s Breaking Ground conference. See the full agenda at #BG2021
