Textizen on the Road

We had the pleasure of meeting many of you in person in 2013. Whether at the American Planning Association, National League of Cities, or Code for America Summit, or during breakout sessions at Planning Camp SF, we had a great time hearing your stories and discussing the future of public engagement. This winter, we hope to cross paths at these events and more:

  • Transportation Camp DC · Washington, DC · Jan 11 Panel: “Public Participation is Broken… Can Technology Help?”
  • NJ Planning Conference · New Brunswick, NJ · Jan 14 Panel: “Engagement 2.0”
  • New Partners for Smart Growth · Denver, CO · Feb 13-15 Panel: “Tools that Empower: Leveraging Emerging Technologies to Dramatically Increase Public Participation”

Will you be there too? Join us at these sessions, or drop us a line.
