IAP2 October Webinar: 2016 Core Values Awards Projects of the Year

October 18, 2016, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (PDT)

Two widely different P2 efforts will share how they won the IAP2 Core Values Awards for Project of the Year in Canada and the USA.

The Maricopa County, Arizona, Flood Control District won the USA award for the Pinnacle Peak West Flood Control Plan. This project was particularly challenging, since many residents had previously opposed a flood-control project because they did not believe their property was at risk of flooding. Theresa Pinto of Maricopa County and Daina Mann of GCI Consulting will share how they developed a public outreach plan.

Joining Theresa and Daina will be Lindsay Sutherland, Manager of Primary Health Care in the Nova Scotia Health Authority. NS Health won for its work in developing Community Health Teams (CHTs) to address health care issues from a variety of angles in individual communities around Nova Scotia.

P2's "Best of the Best" were honored at the 2016 IAP2 Core Values Awards gala and dinner cruise, Sept. 29, 2016.
