What are the IAP2 Core Values Awards?
Each year, IAP2 affiliates around the world recognize leaders in the profession through the IAP2 Core Values Awards. The awards go to projects which best demonstrate IAP2's Core Values and help to raise the bar in the field of public engagement by sharing best practices and inspiring the P2 community to learn from one another. As a friendly competition, the Core Values Awards encourage new approaches and innovative uses of existing ones. The 2015 winning entries were recognized at the 2015 IAP2 North American Conference, September 9 through 11, in Portland, Oregon.
