SF-OAK Chapter

We are a newly-forming chapter and are excited to share our passion for public participation with communities in the Bay Area! We are committed to supporting P2 practitioners and encouraging others to join the movement; please join us in our efforts!

Our new regional chapter, IAP2 SF-Oak will plan networking and collaboration opportunities for Bay Area members throughout the year, including for professional development and skill building.

IAP2 SF-Oak is led by Chapter President Deanna Desedas, SFMTA's Public Outreach and Engagement Manager, with support from some of the Bay Area's leading communications and engagement professionals serving as Chapter Board members. If you are interested in serving in our Chapter, learning more about what we do locally and and nationwide, or hosting or recommending a topic for a monthly meeting, please contact us at iap2sfoakchapter@gmail.comWe can't wait to connect with you!
