IAP2’s Ambassador Program is in full swing. The program, launched as a pilot earlier this year, brings together passionate IAP2 members from across the United States to amplify the message of good P2 and connect colleagues and organizations to the tools and knowledge available to achieve it.
Good P2 matters now more than ever and is needed to design trusted, transparent processes that bring people to the table and ensure good decisions are made together. We know that organizations need supported and sustainable decisions and we know that the public desires increased transparency, feels they have a right to be involved in decision making process, expects to be heard, and are experiencing increased polarization and outrage.

Using IAP2’s Core Values and Ethics as a foundation, Ambassadors are meeting with public, private, and non-profit agencies throughout the U.S. to achieve program goals, which include:
Whether it’s presenting at conferences, showcasing Core Values on social media, meeting with public works and transportation agencies, spreading the word at trainings, and starting and growing local chapters, Ambassadors are showing the world what is possible with good P2.
One of the perks of being an Ambassador is access to tools that promote good P2. The Ambassadors aren’t the only folks that have access to this information, however. All IAP2 members can download and use the official, rebranded brochure and postcard.

IAP2 staff keep you well supplied with support and resources including a ready-made toolkit with promotional materials, a presentation, and communication tools to help you reach out to organizations in your community. Ambassadors will be asked to participate in quarterly conference calls and can work one-on-one with staff to set up an action plan and/or get support to identify organizations to reach out to.
Ambassadors have flexibility to do as much outreach as they can, whether that is reaching out to organizations that can benefit from good P2 and helping them learn more or getting them to sign Core Values pledges. The relationships created by the Ambassadors will bring greater awareness to IAP2’s ethics and values, and ultimately, lead to more opportunities to make good decisions together.
Toolkit materials will be provided to Ambassadors who participate in the program. These include:
