Public Outreach & Affinity Management

Value-Driven Offerings — A Tapestry of Interwoven Services

Aedifos specializes in community-centric, consensus-based bargaining, as well as turnkey life-cycle communications and outreach projects and/or programs.

The importance of appropriate, responsive, and timely communications cannot be understated, yet is often neglected in project and/or program management. Comprehensive public outreach and affinity program services often make or break the success of larger projects/programs, particularly in socially impactful and emotionally charged contexts. The Aedifos Group believes that a major factor to the success of any endeavor lies in establishing and maintaining trust-based communications; Aedifos achieves this through established, evidence-based communications frameworks.

Members of The Aedifos Group provided public outreach services for the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) Regional Goods Movement (RGM) Study. Central to the project were socio-economic implications to the movement of freight within the 8-counties of the H-GAC Transportation Region along the Texas Gulf Coast. Given the size of the Study-area and the varying interests of the vested parties, Stakeholder communication and outreach were identified early-on as crucial indicators of overall Project success. Team members utilized a variety of techniques to ensure success, including establishing a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) comprised of local elected/appointed officials within the Study-area, and required an array of stakeholder meetings.
