    Community engagement is often thought of as a series of public meetings designed to gather information used in policy, budget and program decisions. When community engagement is an organizational value, it exists in all of the organization’s transactions. Community engagement is the responsibility of all employees who deliver direct service.

    This is a reprise of Mickey Fearn's session at the 2019 IAP2 North American Conference, which attendees told us should be shared with other P2 practitioners in a webinar form.

    Among other things, you'll come away with a better understanding of the challenges and demands that race, ethnicity, culture, shifting demographics and cultural pluralism make on democratic process and public engagement. Participants will understand how these factors affect public engagement processes and understand how to apply tools and strategies in response to those demands. Create and conduct innovative experiments with employees, community organizations and residents that demonstrate a commitment to relevancy, inclusion, diversity and equity.

    The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) issued 94 Calls to Action in its final report, increasing the imperative to engage meaningfully with Indigenous peoples. But what does that look like for a Public Participation Professional? How do you follow up on the Calls to Action and apply their principles to your practice?

    Join IAP2 Canada and the Canadian Council on Aboriginal Business for this webinar on PAR -- Progressive Aboriginal Relations. PAR was introduced 19 years ago to “raise the bar” in relations between Indigenous and all Canadians and is the only corporate social responsibility program in Canada to focus solely on Aboriginal relations.

    Tout connaitre sur la création, l’animation et la gestion d’un comité citoyen

    (en français ou en anglais / in English or French)

    Reconnus pour être des mécanismes crédibles de participation publique, les comités citoyens se multiplient à grande vitesse, et ce, dans tous les types et toutes les phases des projets. Un comité mis en place et animé selon les bonnes pratiques devient un lieu riche en échanges, contribuant efficacement à l’acceptabilité sociale. À l’inverse, un comité improvisé peut faire perdre aux gens leur temps, voire nuire au processus. Le cours, axé sur le terrain, vous permettra de savoir comment s’y prendre pour créer, animer et gérer un comité, à l’aide d’expériences vécues et de conseils pratiques.

    Ce cours sera offert en français ou en anglais, selon les préférences des participants.

    VEUILLEZ NOTER : Les membres de l’AIP2 provenant de l’extérieur du Canada doivent s’inscrire à l’aide d’un code. Veuillez communiquer avec info@iap2canada.ca pour l’obtenir.

    Recognized as a credible public participation mechanism, citizen committees are quickly multiplying in all types of projects and phases. A committee that is set-up and managed according to best practices can create a rich space for dialogue and exchanges, and also help a project’s social acceptability. On the other hand, an ad hoc citizen committee can waste people's time or even interfere with the process. Based on hands-on experiences and practical tips, this course will use group discussions and activities to teach you how to create, facilitate, lead and manage a citizen committee.

    This course will be offered either in French or in English, depending on the participants’ preferences.

    Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) offered a roadmap to improved relationships between Indigenous and all Canadians through the 94 Calls to Action. These actions are directed at Canadian governments, corporations, institutions, and citizens, and describe the important role that decision-makers have to play in charting the course for a renewed country in which all citizens have the opportunity to benefit from the prosperity of this land. Yet many organizations and citizens are not sufficiently equipped to respond and take action in meaningful and culturally inclusive ways. This course offers foundational knowledge, real-life examples, and dynamic problem-solving for individuals working to advance Indigenous inclusion within their professional and personal communities.

    This course engages with three popular methods for large-scale, dialogue-based public participation on public policy issues: the 21st-Century Town Hall, Deliberative Polling, and Citizen Juries. Each process helps participants learn about an issue, create space for in-depth deliberation and generate detailed feedback on public policy options. Participants will also explore, and apply to their own work, key ingredients of large-scale processes, including developing discussion content and questions, as well as outreach strategies that involve large numbers of diverse participants.

    Increasingly, local governments around the world are claiming their work is “participatory,” and while community engagement can be empowering, there are still persistent challenges, particularly for historically disenfranchised communities. When successful, P2 can facilitate legitimacy, promote collaborative problem-solving and help correct structural inequities; but it can also reinforce existing power inequities and undermine benefits.

    How residents perceive participatory processes may differ greatly from how practitioners perceive the same process. This session from the 2019 IAP2 North American Conference is one which attendees told us should be shared via a webinar. Allison Smith of the City of Louisville, KY, and Daniel DeCaro of the University of Louisville will discuss the research of a transdisciplinary team that looked into the ways institutional and systemic racism shape residents’ perception of a city’s governance practices and inform how to improve the public participation process.

    Online engagement has gone from being the Next Big Thing in public participation to a "given"; but there are still a lot of questions and answers and lessons to be learned. We are delighted to bring together two of the more well-received presentations from the 2019 IAP2 North American Conference in Charlotte, NC, to bring some of those issues into focus. 

    Miranda Eng of Context - An Argyle Company - will share some of the tactics and lessons her colleagues have learned about the Art and Science of Online Engagement. Really, it's harder than it looks. While modern and accessible, how do you choose the right online platform and tools to use, to creatively inform (and not bore) people, to gather the input you need, while reaching those underrepresented populations you want to hear from?

    You'll learn about a practical approach to designing online engagement, including how to marry design principles for user experience and target outreach tactics to hear from underrepresented groups.

    Joining Miranda will be the co-presenters of Transforming Public Apathy: How Online Engagement is Revitalizing North Carolina. Jamille Robbins, Ashley Bush and Dave Biggs will discuss how the North Carolina Department of Transportation combined creative online public participation techniques with an inspired communications strategy. They systematically identified and removed ten significant barriers to participation and generated unprecedented results for a wide variety of planning efforts, from focused corridor studies to statewide transportation improvement plans. In all, they saw an increase in participation of 7000%.

    What does it look like to apply human-centered design (otherwise known as “design thinking”) to your engagement efforts? What if you could co-create, prototype, and test your engagement strategy with key stakeholders before rolling it out? We’ve found that integrating human-centered design into public participation builds ownership and trust by meaningfully engaging participants early in the process, and produces better outcomes through an understanding of local context and stakeholder preferences.

    In this "encore" from the 2019 IAP2 North American Conference, Cristelle Blackford of Civicmakers will reprise "Applying Human-Centered Design to You P2 Strategy", in which she shares the fundamentals of  human-centered design and how it applies to P2.

    In this reprise of a session at the 2019 IAP2 North American Conference, you'll learn how the City of Raleigh, North Carolina, used public sector partnerships to create a culture of P2. 

    The vision for the City of Raleigh is ‘to pursue world-class quality of life by actively collaborating with our community towards a fulfilling and inspired future for all’.  As part of City Council’s desire to strengthen community engagement and communication (part of the Strategic Plan adopted in 2015), staff was tasked with researching premier public engagement models to implement citywide. The IAP2 model was identified as the best practice.  

    The City of Raleigh is in the early stages of IAP2 implementation however, many of the organization’s past and present engagement projects utilized elements of the IAP2 framework. You'll learn about Raleigh’s steps towards creating an internal P2 framework for future engagement initiatives and the relationships developed to advance this goal; and find ways to apply that in your own work.

    Does this sound familiar?

    • Are your projects failing to move forward because of public opposition?
    • Are your staff regularly faced with an angry public at meetings?
    • Is your organization perceived as untrustworthy or unresponsive?
    • Is decision-making fraught with polarized viewpoints & stalled on how to move ahead?
    • Does it feel like your relationship with the people you serve or interact with is all about us versus them?
    • Is the media covering your every move?

    Maybe it is time to step back and try a new way of engaging.

    This two-day training course with combines the work of risk communication expert Dr. Peter Sandman with IAP2's core concepts for meaningful and effective public engagement. Development of this course was led by Stephani Roy McCallum in 2009, and an update of course materials in 2017 reflects the current context of today’s charged environment. The workshop is a practical, hands-on participatory mix of video, lecture, group exercises and decades of real world experience in engaging the public in high stakes, high conflict situations.

    Does this sound familiar?

    • Are your projects failing to move forward because of public opposition?
    • Are your staff regularly faced with an angry public at meetings?
    • Is your organization perceived as untrustworthy or unresponsive?
    • Is decision-making fraught with polarized viewpoints & stalled on how to move ahead?
    • Does it feel like your relationship with the people you serve or interact with is all about us versus them?
    • Is the media covering your every move?

    Maybe it is time to step back and try a new way of engaging.

    This two-day training course with combines the work of risk communication expert Dr. Peter Sandman with IAP2's core concepts for meaningful and effective public engagement. Development of this course was led by Stephani Roy McCallum in 2009, and an update of course materials in 2017 reflects the current context of today’s charged environment. The workshop is a practical, hands-on participatory mix of video, lecture, group exercises and decades of real world experience in engaging the public in high stakes, high conflict situations.
