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.

Register for the NA IAP2 Conference and Call for Session Proposals

At last, you can justify a trip to Portlandia and rub shoulders with hundreds of P2 rock stars and peers as IAP2 USA, IAP2 Canada and the Cascade Chapter co-host the 2015 North American conference next September. The theme “What’s Brewing in P2” follows the Pacific Northwest’s reputation for coffee and brewpubs. And because IAP2 was born here in the early 1990s, we hope to see record runs of P2 practitioners returning like salmon to spawn.

To learn more visit the IAP2 NA Conference Webpage.

Consider presenting a session at the Conference. The Call for Session Proposals is open until March 6, 2015.
