Great news, everyone! After a year of prep work, our IAP2 Georgia chapter is starting to re-emerge.
A small group of long-time public participation enthusiasts in the greater Atlanta, Georgia metro area have decided that the time is right to revive the local chapter there, which went inactive and eventually shut down about eight years ago. Over the next six to twelve months, the team plans to first get a basic level of activity going again in Atlanta, and then from there quickly grow the chapter into a viable hub strong enough to serve the public participation community across the entire Peach State.
You’re invited to help kick things off:
IAP2 Georgia Kick-Off Mixer
Wednesday, August 5, 6-8pm
Sheraton Atlanta Hotel
165 Courtland Street
Atlanta, GA 30303
RSVP via Eventbrite
If you have friends or colleagues in the region who might be interested, please share this opportunity and encourage them to register.
- The IAP2 Georgia team (Lillian Jackson and Ron Thomas) will provide you with a quick update on their launch activities.
- Expect to participate in a quick interactive brainstorming exercise to identify how the chapter can best serve you over the next six to twelve months.
- We are very excited to present a lightning talk by Dr. David Campt on the art and practice of using audience response systems to transform (public) meetings. David just published an excellent book on the topic and will be there all evening for a book signing and to answer questions.
Of course, we'll have plenty of time for socializing and making new connections!
