OPPI Province-wide On-line Book Club

Start/End Date: Monday, October 26, 2020 12:00 AM - Friday, January 29, 2021 12:00 AM
District: Ontario

The OPPI On-line Book Club will soon be starting our next book, Walkable City Rules: 101 Steps to Making Better Places by Jeff Speck. This book is available in hard copy, e-reader, or audio book formats. Please note this book was published in 2018, and is not to be confused with the author’s previous book from 2013.  We will start reading the book in the final week of October.

 

Please note the book club will be transitioning from our previous home on Linked In to OPPI’s new Planners Connect platform. Our format on the new platform will be very similar to the Linked In group with weekly discussions and a wrap-up Zoom discussion at the end of the book. New or existing book club members are invited to read along with us and to join in the discussions on Planners Connect.

 

We look forward to the coming read and some great discussions.

 

Free Event.

Plain Language Webinar

Start/End Date: Thursday, November 12, 2020 12:00 PM - Thursday, November 12, 2020 1:30 PM
District: Ontario

At a time when clear communication is crucial, all planners need to be able to write for diverse audiences. Join us for a lively, interactive webinar, designed for OPPI members, on Civic Clarity for Planners.

You will be introduced to practical techniques and pro tips on how to deliver documents that are more precise, inclusive, and polished! In 90 minutes, you will learn how to become a better planner by:

 

  • Improving how you share your technical expertise with any audience, be it the general public, other experts, or the most senior decision-makers in your organization.
  • Fixing the disconnect between professionals, decision-makers, and citizens on complex plans, projects, and programs by applying principles of civic clarity.
  • Providing engaging reports, plans, consultation materials, and more, in plain language, to generate meaningful input and better outcomes.
  • Working more effectively and collaboratively with partners like elected officials, consultants, non-profits, and community groups.

 

Participants will receive tip sheets and guidelines following the workshop, and access to the recording to watch in your own time (we know you’re juggling!).

 

For a sneak peek, check out these 5 to 10-minute videos.

 

Lisa Orchard is an expert at making complex ideas clear for diverse audiences. As a technical communication professional with 20+ years of experience writing and editing strategic documents to advance city building projects, she brings a big-picture, interdisciplinary, and innovative approach to her clients in government, non-profits, the private sector and local communities. With a background in urban planning, policy and research, consultation and engagement, and government relations, she has been involved in many high-profile initiatives that will influence our cities for decades into the future.
