2. Stakeholder participation includes the promise that their contributions will influence decisions

4. Stakeholder engagement seeks input on how they may wish to participate
5. Stakeholder engagement provides information, time, and space to allow stakeholders to participate in a meaningful way
6. It never hurts to be polite
