"When I took the Foundations training, we talked about how to reach populations who are difficult to reach, and we identified those populations, newcomers, people with limited English skills, over-worked people, new parents and asked what tools we could use to reach them." - Isis Lopez

Upcoming IAP2 Learning Webinars
June Learning Webinar: CHARLOTTE ENCORE - "An Online Engagement Master Class"
Tuesday, June 9, 11am PDT
Online engagement has gone from being the "Next Big Thing" in public participation to a "given"; but there are still a lot of questions and answers and lessons to be learned. We are delighted to bring together two of the more well-received presentations from the 2019 IAP2 North American Conference in Charlotte, NC, to bring some of those issues into focus.
This learning webinar will feature Miranda Eng, Jamille Robbins, Ashley Bush, and Dave Biggs, where they will share their practical approach to designing online engagement, including how to marry design principles for user experience and target outreach tactics to hear from underrepresented groups.
