2019 AMPO Planning Tools & Training Symposium

Screen Shot 2019-04-20 at 9.36.35 AM


In 2017 AMPO launched the first ever Planning Tools and Training Symposium. The purpose of the symposium is to assist in meeting the diverse set of needs of our membership. While there are several conferences and training opportunities available to the transportation planning community, the needs and requirements of MPOs are unique. The AMPO Planning Tools and Training Symposium is tailored to the requirements of MPOs as well as the challenges associated with meeting such requirements and structured to meet the needs of small, medium, and large MPOs. The symposium brings together MPO staff and practitioners to share information on a variety of MPO technical issues and provided peer-to-peer training for the MPO community to discuss challenges, opportunities, and implementation strategies with regard to current planning tools and applications. The goal of the symposium is to identify (or share) MPO best practices; provide practical training; and develop materials that can be shared across the MPO community.

The symposium takes place over the course of two and a half days and consists of multiple roundtable workshops. The workshops are divided into two tracks: Core Functions and Hot Topics. The Core Functions track is developed with junior staff in mind and seeks to provide practical training by topic area (i.e. MPO process and products, public involvement/environmental justice/Title XI, performance management, etc.). The Hot Topics track is developed with senior-level staff in mind and provides peer-to-peer exchange and training opportunities to discuss the state of the practice, innovation, and identify efficiencies.

We are excited for this year’s dynamic program that includes 24.5 approved AICP credits!
