IAP2 USA Staff
Amelia is IAP2 USA’s part time Executive Manager. She is well known to many in the IAP2 family, having been the past interim Executive Director for the IAP2 Federation, a past International Board director, past president of IAP2 Canada and now a licensed IAP2 Trainer. She has been a leader in IAP2 for many years and has many IAP2 achievements including being a Core Value Awards winner.
Outside of her work with IAP2 Amelia is a consultation strategist, practitioner and IAF certified facilitator. Over the past nineteen years Amelia has been successfully involved in the development of significant policies, projects and plans from strategic design, to initiating and facilitating inclusive processes, and implementation. Her ultimate goal, with any project, is to find an innovative approach that supports both community and organizational values and objectives that leads to helpful deliverables and a positive outcome. Organizations might hold the pen or shovel, but everyone will live with and help fund the outcome – people must be involved. Her proudest accomplishments are her three daughters.
