COMPASS strives to communicate and disseminate information in a clear and concise manner and to have an ongoing dialogue with the public, stakeholders, and elected officials on issues that affect them and the future of their communities. A Public Participation Committee comprised of members of the public advises COMPASS staff on public outreach and education efforts. Would you like to join this committee? Contact Amy Luft for more information.
To facilitate dialogue and provide learning opportunities, COMPASS hosts an education series where it brings speakers on a variety of topics to the Treasure Valley to share their expertise through free presentations to public and professional audiences. COMPASS also recognizes local leadership and innovative projects though its annual Leadership in Motion awards.
COMPASS also develops written materials and shares information in the form of the newsletters, news releases, technical reports, an online annual report, email blasts, and more. Contact Amy Luft if you’d like to be added to an email list.
COMPASS solicits public input on its programs, plans, policies, and other work products. That public input is used by COMPASS staff, advisory committees, and the COMPASS Board of Directors as they make decisions affecting the future of the Treasure Valley.
Check the COMPASS calendar for information on meetings, speakers, public comment periods, and other events. Learn more about what COMPASS is up to at our Executive Director’s blog, or “like” us on Facebook.
