Help promote public participation

April 21, 2010

My sister currently sits on the board of Edmonton’s IAP2, the International Association of Public Participation.

IAP2 is dedicated to encourage and improve public participation in relation to individuals, governments, institutions, and other entities that affect the public interest in nations throughout the world.

Being a member of IAP2 enables you to network with like-minded professionals committed to promoting the practice of public participation.  IAP2 has groups and affliates all over the world including:

  • France,
  • United Kingdom,
  • Ireland,
  • United States of America,
  • Australia, and
  • Canada

The Wildrose is the IAP2 group in Alberta and is recruiting youth as members. Especially young professionals straight out of school.

Who are members of IAP2, you ask?

  • policy makers
  • facilitators
  • multi-party mediators
  • planning professionals
  • project managers
  • citizen activists
  • public affairs and public relations professionals
  • government agencies
  • utilities and transit agencies
  • environmental groups
  • advocacy groups
  • professional organizations

Becoming a member is beneficial for networking purposes and keeps you updated in the field of public participation.

And it wouldn’t hurt to mention Teneya Holmberg’s name when signing up as a member, either. 😉

Happy networking
