Public Consultation & Participation

Government approval is no longer enough. The public needs, expects and demands to participate in decisions that affect them—and most decisions do. Effective public participation strategies can ensure that projects are approved, stay on schedule and operate effectively when completed.

NATIONAL is staffed with accredited public participation professionals that are ready to help you engage the community in advance of your next project.

Sometimes the biggest barrier to a successful project is lack of information. Without all the facts, key stakeholders may decide against supporting your initiative.

NATIONAL will help you reach key stakeholders and monitor their positions, identify opinion leaders, hold community consultations, gather feedback and assess stakeholder risk. Using media relations, advertising, public consultations, web marketing, direct mail and in-person meetings, we will identify key audiences and help you collaborate with them.
