Collaborative Governance: turning conflict into resolution
Sam Imperati - Guest Speaker Virtual Broadcast


Harper Houf Peterson Righellis Inc.
205 SE Spokane Street, 2nd Floor,  Portland, OR
Free parking on site.
Back by popular demand, Sam Imperati will explore the evolution of public involvement to the mediation of high stakes, high conflict disputes when everyone is watching. Learn the theories of collaborative governance and the practical techniques used to bring diverse stakeholders to resolution, not just “settlement” where they walk away unhappy. Learn tools that help groups make wiser decisions at the intersection of logic and emotion. Sam Imperati is the executive director of the Institute for Conflict Management and collaborative governance guru. Sam’s thought provoking, rapid fire and at times hilarious delivery is the highlight of training events. Expose yourself to Sam’s wisdom from decades of high stakes collaboration that has helped shape the Pacific Northwest.
But wait, there’s more! 
Immediately after Sam’s presentation, IAP2 USA Board member Tim Bonnemann will give a 5-minute introduction to Zilino, a new online engagement tool for hosting deliberative online forums that enables public participation practitioners to design and manage well structured, well facilitated online dialogues and consultations. Feel free to email if you have any questions beforehand.
Join us afterward for networking and fun at the Buffalo Gap, 6835 SW Macadam Ave.
In the spirit of collaboration, Cascade Chapter of IAP2 USA will share this PI Network with Puget Sound chapter members and friends live from Portland.
Please RSVP to Stefanie Slyman at by March 18. 
Due to construction on the Sellwood Bridge, please allow extra time or take a route other than Macadam Avenue.
