IAP2 September Webinar: P2 & Decision-Makers
September 19, 2016, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (PDT)
Join us for a discussion on an aspect of P2 that we haven't covered yet: how elected officials come to buy into the concept of letting those affected by a decision have a voice and an influence on that decision.
On September 19, we'll hear from Longmont, Colorado, Mayor Dennis Coombs, and City Councillors Blair Lancaster of Burlington, Ontario, Leslie Pool from Austin Texas, and Marianne Alto of Victoria, BC, on how they and their colleagues were convinced of the value of meaningful public engagement. What did it take? Did they need to be convinced? Did they feel like they were surrendering a "right" to make the decisions? Did they get flack from staff experts?
Don't miss this unique opportunity to gain insights on this important aspect of the profession!
