Metro, acting by and through the appointed Metropolitan Exposition Recreation Commission (MERC), is requesting proposals for Expo Future Community Engagement for the Office of the Chief Operating Officer.

The selected Consultant will work directly with the project’s advisory committee focused on advancing community engagement. The group will be represented by partners, communities most impacted by the site and supporting organizations. In addition, successful engagement will consider project objectives and seek opportunities to integrate both objectives into the storytelling and recommendations of the future campus.
