The agency will be publishing a full list of topics and further details on the event locations as soon as possible. Topics that will be discussed and explored during the Strategic Planning Tour sessions include various clarifications and/or enhancements in the scope of agency operations and processes – such as efficiencies, effectiveness, and interactions with other agencies. How can we improve? Specific questions will be posed as a catalyst for these discussions. We welcome your insights.
New this for this year’s tour, if you are unable to attend one of the in person sessions we have planned two online sessions for license holders to attend and give their feedback. We hope this extends participation in a convenient format to as many of our license holders and consumers as possible.
The purpose of these meetings will be to help guide the Commission and Board members during the strategic planning process. These discussions are meant to be an open forum to gain insight on the needs and preferences of license holders and the public. Each session is planned for two hours and CE credit may be available.
In addition to the published questions for strategic planning, TREC staff will be available to answer your questions on the new advertising requirements effective May 15, 2018. We have published helpful tools, held an online town hall and FAQs on this important topic. TREC wants to ensure license holders have the tools they need to get into compliance with the rules by the deadline.
