2019 Skills Symposium: Investing in your P2 Infrastructure

  • 20 Mar 2019
  • 35 Laurier St, Gatineau, QC J8X 4E9, Canada
  • 20


  • For members of the IAP2 Affiliates or IAP2 Federation International Associates.


P2 continues to evolve from one-time events to a culture of engagement. Just like our physical roads, bridges, and pipes, our P2 “infrastructure” needs a solid framework to deliver meaning and value. To support that evolution, participants assess the strengths and weaknesses of P2 infrastructure including local policies, professional practices, resources and capabilities, and performance -- grounded in IAP2 Core Values/Code of Ethics. Working in teams, participants assess their communities using a robust P2 Audit Worksheet with critical questions and clear guidance; learn to interpret their findings; and draw from best practices, case studies, and innovations to create an Action Plan to upgrade P2 infrastructure.

PLEASE NOTE: International IAP2 members require a code to register. Please contact info@iap2canada.ca to obtain it.
