Starting up a new non-profit membership organization involves dealing with a lot of formalities: bylaws, bank accounts, budgets, board elections etc. etc. — not necessarily the most exciting stuff, unless you’re a lawyer maybe, or an accountant.

As a reader of this blog, I’m sure by now you’ve noticed that the emerging IAP2 USA is no exception in that regard, and we’re not even starting from scratch (450 members and a dozen chapters all across the US are great assets to work with). Getting these things done right is important, of course, and we’re hopeful we’ll have the basics accomplished in time for a January 1, 2011 launch as scheduled.

At the same time, it is nice every now and then to get a reminder of what really matters — creating value!

Here’s a nice bit of feedback from a recent attendee of IAP2’s Certificate Training Course in Public Participation that landed in my inbox the other day and that I wanted to share:

Feedback from a recent IAP2 training in San Antonio, TX

Now that’s exciting! Great training, great events, great networking and learning — all things we will focus on come January. Hope you can join us!

    Speaking of training. Sorry I was a “day late and dollar short” on getting my information into the email that just went out to US members. In any case, the IAP2 training is being offered in San Diego this fall. The Planning Course will be Oct. 21-22, Techniques is Dec. 1-2, and Communications is Dec. 3. You can contact me for more information.

    Thanks, Lewis!

    I added the training dates to our calendar. Let me know if you have PDF flyers or descriptions anywhere that we can link to: https://iap2usa.wordpress.com/events-calendar/
