This two-day workshop is a frequent request from our IAP2 Foundations participants, who ask for this training to further their public participation skills – notably to facilitate their sophisticated engagement designs.
This workshop is a very interactive, skill-building opportunity that helps P2 practitioners build and strengthen their facilitation skills, in order to ensure effective community and stakeholder engagements.
Building on the core values of IAP2, the IAP2 Great Lakes aspires to advance the practice of public participation by promoting a culture of connection and sharing among P2 practitioners (members and non-members) in the Great Lakes region.
The vision for the Great Lakes Chapter is to build on the core values of the IAP2 and provide members in the Great Lakes region with:
Opportunities for education, professional development and networking.
A culture of interaction, connection and sharing among P2 practitioners (members and non-members).
Support to achieve best practice in P2 and to celebrate projects and people that embrace this commitment
To achieve this vision the IAP2 Great Lakes Chapter will:
Organize training and learning opportunities
Host social events
Communicate with members and non-members using multiple approaches including e-newsletters and web
Develop strategic partnerships that will provide value for members
Recognize and celebrate people and projects
