About the Event

Effective communication is central to every environmental project, from conducting public meetings and managing relationships between public and private partners to working with stakeholders to implement roadside management projects. This conference highlighted the critical role of communication in creating and maintaining environmental projects—and how you can use it to achieve positive results.
Keynote speaker John Njord, executive vice president of Tom Warne and Associates, LLC and former chief executive officer of the Utah Department of Transportation, explored the inherent connection between transportation projects and people. In addition, the conference included an awards ceremony honoring the recipients of the 2015 Environmental Stewardship Awards.
