Join us for the Next Calgary Coffee Klatsch!
At this gathering we will share ideas about P2 Intentions for 2016: what goals, new techniques, improvements are you bringing to your practice this new year?
Please join us for this informal get-together where we share experiences, challenges and ideas to learn from each other. It is a great opportunity to meet other people working in public participation in a casual setting.
Message from the President, Amanda Kaiser
It's definitely been an interesting, busy and challenging year for many P2 practitioners in Alberta this year.
In 2015, the IAP2 Wild Rose Board of Directors focused on providing member value in the form of lunch and learns and coffee klatches in Calgary and Edmonton throughout the year as well as an Indigenous Engagement event in Calgary in partnership with Synergy Alberta at their annual conference in November. We also invested in relationships with other organizations and groups.

Signature Event Wrap-up
On behalf of the 2015 Signature Event Committee, we would like to say a sincere thank-you to the participants, the speakers, venue hosts and everyone who made this years' event a success. In just one day, 50 stakeholder engagement professionals networked, shifted their outlook with Kairos Creative Solutions, took on risk with the Alberta Energy Regulator, got creative with Urban Systems, and learned how to leverage mainstream media with Zerr Communications Inc.
For those of you attending the Wild Rose AGM tomorrow, please find the AGM Package materials for your review. Please print them if you want, or have them handy on your device. There will be a few printed versions available tomorrow. The Treasurer's report will also be provided tomorrow.
Thank you, and see you tomorrow!
