Creative Committee

To the MRG team:
"I believe that this year we made a bigger impact and certainly created a good and effective procedure matrix which we can use on future campaigns. The Creative Committee group, consisting of FDOT's Traffic Ops & PIO, Consultants MRG & Communikatz, and Injury Free Coalition has proven to be a solid group with great follow-through. We've basically developed a matrix for procedures/tasks necessary to do a cost-effective, yet successful grass roots campaign. With the e-mail blasts, we've been able to reach directly 100,000 individuals at various government and safety agencies, municipalities and officials."
