Nebraska Chapter - Emerging

Help Nebraska communities make better informed and more widely supported decisions! 

The Nebraska Chapter was created to better connect Nebraska-based organizations and professionals who share a passion for stronger and more effective public participation that moves beyond just checking a box or “decide and defend” approaches.

IAP2 Nebraska Virtual Roundtable

Antidotes to Zoom Fatigue
Thursday, November 19
Noon - 1 PM CST

This roundtable will provide public participation professionals and other interested stakeholders with an opportunity to discuss what they’ve seen work well in the age of COVID-required virtual engagement. The format will feature for peer-to-peer sharing of antidotes and workarounds for “Zoom fatigue” as well as lessons learned from the Omaha Public Power District’s new online engagement platform OPPDCommunityConnect, which was created in partnership with the Australian firm Bang the Table.
