1st Annual North American Conference
IAP2 USA and IAP2 Canada have entered into an agreement to host annual IAP2 North American conferences beginning September 30 – October 2, 2012 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The 2013 conference will be held in the US.
This year’s theme is the Power of Public Participation: A 360 Perspective. Participants will be able to STMULATE their minds, MOTIVATE their hears and PARTICIPATE in action. The conference team was inspired by the idea of P2 equally involving the head, heart and hands and through our conference themes hope to explore how each of these play an integral role in expansion and growth of public participation. We aim to involve researchers, stakeholders, academics, community members, decision-makers, practitioners and others to build together a diverse audience thereby truly getting a 360 perspective.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS – Want to conduct a session during the conference? Submit your proposal by MARCH 23. Call for Proposals This call for proposals is for interested individuals, groups or organizations to present and share their insights and expertise in the P2 field. Proposals will be initially reviewed by the Program Committee to ensure submission fit one of the 3 sub-themes. Following this initial screening proposals will be posted online for the review of the IAP2 Canada and USA membership. Via crowdsourcing tools we will request members to vote on their favorite proposals to help us determining who will be presenting in Halifax…..so keep it FUN, INTERACTIVE and EXCITING for your potential participants!
