2023 North American Conference
Thank you sponsors and attendees for making this year's IAP2 North American Conference a success.
This year’s conference theme, "Partnering for Possibility", was about coming together in authentic and creative ways. This conference show us what can happen when equitable engagement is shared, valued, and celebrated. We took chances and believed in people, processes, and opportunities. We celebrated this critical moment in time, as we actively recover from a multi-year pandemic and adapt our approaches to public engagement in the context of racial reckoning and reconciliation. Thank you for sharing our combined enthusiasm and knowledge.
