We’re Open For Business!

Good news! You can now become a member of IAP2 USA. Simply download the membership application form (PDF) and return via mail.

We’re also working on setting up an online registration form and hope to have that piece in place over the next couple of weeks or so.

For the time being, our membership and pricing model remains fairly similar to IAP2’s. However, we’ve been tossing around a lot of ideas for a new and improved version that better fits our needs. For example, we’d like to:

  • Create an attractive offering for people for whom public participation is not the main focus of their professional work
  • Offer better opportunities for IAP2 training attendees to stay involved with the organization
  • Create relevant sponsoring opportunities for both individual and organizational members

We still have to figure out some of the details. Expect to see the new model to launch early next year.

If you have questions about becoming a member or if you need to renew your existing membership, please contact us.

    This being March, is IAP2-USA going to: “Create an attractive offering for people for whom public participation is not the main focus of their professional work.”

    In other words, will there be an option anytime soon that would make it easier for people like me (i.e., it’s not our “main focus”)to justify joining IAP2-USA?

    Thanks.

    Hi, Stephen. Thanks for checking in!

    We’re preparing for our first in-person Board meeting later this month. We hope to make progress on a number of issues, including membership fee structure and potential new offerings for new member types.
