Featured Session from the School of Business Management – Community Relations Track:
TH51 – Effectively Countering Community Opposition to Your Project; Thursday, March 21, 9:30 – 11 a.m.
Christopher Hopkins, The Saint Consulting Group; Thomas Powell, Cemex USA; Mark Harrison, Harrison, Temblador, Hungerford & Johnson LLP
This session will provide guidelines for anticipating objections and potential opposition within a community. It will closely scrutinize the relationship between vocal support or opposition and the impact that it has on elected officials. Multiple speakers will be featured, including a local elected official and a producer who has faced this type of opposition and countered it with a strategic plan. The material is based on NSSGA’s best-selling Community Relations Handbook: A Guide to Building Trust and Credibility in the Community. The session will discuss the most effective information that should be included in an extensive political due diligence prior to making your application public. Presenters will review a redacted political due diligence during the session.
