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. Today, IAP2 USA serves some 500 members – in public agencies, academia, consulting firms and non-profit organizations. Read the IAP2 USA Strategic Plan here.

This year IAP2 USA is supplementing the annual North American conference with an exciting training opportunity. In response to members’ expressed desires, we are planning a five-day training event that will deliver a smorgasbord of learning to our membership and network.

The event will involve a wide range of workshops of varying duration and topics exploring skills, tools and techniques that support effective public participation. This training will be undertaken in a rich learning environment, with activities building a creative and supportive space for participants whether they spend a day or the whole week at the event.

2015 North American Conference

Come join us in beautiful (and weird) Portland, Oregon, September 9 – 11, 2015 at the Hilton DoubleTree for the Fourth Annual IAP2 North American Conference!

What’s Brewing in P2?

Join fellow practitioners and colleagues in the birthplace of IAP2! Experience Portlandia, eat a Voodoo Donut, and explore the #1 city on the 2013 list of America’s Best Cities—and we’re even better now!

This year’s theme “What’s Brewing in P2?” reflects the Northwest’s reputation for crafted coffees, teas, and brews. It also offers opportunities to strengthen your skills, open your mind to new approaches, renew friendships with old colleagues, and meet new P2 practitioners.

We have four terrific keynote speakers already confirmed, and are currently reviewing session submissions. We will provide a "conference-at-a-glance" in April. JOIN US!

For more information, visit our conference page. See you in September!
