2017 Metropolitan Planning Tools and Training Symposium

Hosted by Association of Metropolitan Planning Organizations

The AMPO Planning Tools & Training Symposium will bring together MPO staff and practitioners to share information on a variety of MPO technical issues. The Symposium will provide peer-to-peer training and workshops for the MPO community to discuss challenges, opportunities, and implementation strategies with regard to current and emerging planning tools and applications. The Symposium will provide an opportunity to identify and communicate MPO best practices; provide practical training; and develop useful materials that can be shared across the MPO community. The Symposium will include two concurrent curriculums. The MPO 101 curriculum is intended for newer MPO employees and will provide participants with a high-level overview of the purpose and requirements of MPOs. The Advanced curriculum will offer in-depth presentations and discussion on specialized topics that are emerging or evolving within transportation planning.
