WHO WE ARE
IAP2 USA was organized in 2010 as an affiliate of the International Association for Public Participation, serving the needs of P2 practitioners specific to the United States while maintaining the standards set by the worldwide Federation. IAP2 USA improves and supports the field by advancing and advocating for public participation that aligns with our Core Values and Code of Ethics. Learn more.
CORE VALUES AWARDS:
As a P2 practitioner you work hard to ensure that you are developing and delivering great public participation processes. Have you been a part of a P2 project that involved innovation, breaking new ground and/or engaging previously unreached sectors? The time is NOW to give others the opportunity to give you a pat on the back, and apply for the 2017 IAP2 Core Values Awards.
The three National Award winners will go on to compete for the IAP2 Federation Core Values Awards against winning projects from other worldwide Affiliates.
2017 North American Conference
P2 for a changing world ...what does this mean for you?
The events of the past twelve months have left many people in the public participation community wondering, "What is the future of the practice?" With the changes we’re seeing in the world today, what role does P2 play? Does it have any place at all?"
These are hard questions, and the Sixth Annual IAP2 North American Conference will be the place to address them and try to find the answers.
IAP2 April Webinar – Core Value Award Winners: "Innovation, Creativity, & the Greater Good"
April 11, 2017, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (PST)
IAP2 is excited to present more opportunities to learn from the best of the best, as this month, we feature two more award-winning P2 projects with ideas, tools and techniques that you can use to apply to your own work.
Rejuvenating a major traffic artery in San Francisco and bringing it back to its former glory was also a touchy subject around the City By The Bay, and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency chose to reach out to the people involved to help come up with a plan. The Van Ness Improvement Project is still going on, and the P2 process MUNI used was the first recipient of IAP2 USA's Core Values Award for Creativity and Innovation.
End-of-life health care choices can be a subject a lot of us try to avoid, and it's possible to wait too long. CEAN -- the Community Engagement Advisory Network at the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority -- set out to help people deal with it in the Advance Care Planning Program. Facilitators volunteer their time to help bring together patients, family members and health-care providers to plan for The Inevitable while the patient is still able to make his or her wishes clear. CEAN received the P2 for the Public Good Award at the 2016 IAP2 Core Values Award.
