This year’s conference theme Sound Partnerships: Community Engagement in Times of Change offers a reflection from the past year highlighting the lessons learned and the innovations that came from carrying public participation values through a global pandemic and racial justice reckoning. The event will be an inspiration and call to action as we continue to equitably advance public participation in our communities and neighborhoods. We look forward to seeing you virtually in September!
From adapting engagement to the virtual environment to helping communities recover from traumatic events to IAP2’s role in ensuring equity in engagement, this year’s IAP2 North American Virtual Conference (Sept. 13 - 16) is right in tune with our times!
Thank you to our sponsors for their generous support!
