Pursuing the Greater Good: P2 for a Changing World- Conference Recap

The IAP2 conference celebrated its silver anniversary this year (the first conference was in Portland in 1992) with a packed house in Denver, Colorado. Since that first conference, the practice has grown dramatically with this year's conference drawing practitioners from all over the world. The world is a different place then it was in 1992, cell phones are smaller, televisions are bigger, and the world is more connected then ever.

June 21st marked the Summer solstice, kicking off a season of celebrating and for those of us in Calgary, Stampeding! But, before we start the summer merriments, we wanted to share a brief update on the activities of the chapter over the last month and let you know what's ahead.

Message from the Past President, Amanda Kaiser

As the Past President, I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate and welcome the new President, Lauren Bartlette and the new 2017-2019 board members.  Lauren has served on the Wild Rose board for the last three years as Director at Large.  Her experience and leadership will no doubt make her successful in her new role as President.

A HUGE Thank you to our Sponsors!

We are pleased to announce that ISL Engineering and Land Services, Communica and McElhanney are sponsors of the IAP2 Wild Rose Signature Event.

As a not-for-profit organization run exclusively by volunteers, IAP2 Wild Rose works hard to bring our members the best value for the lowest cost. As such, the success of the Signature Event depends in part on the generosity of our sponsors and organizations that consider themselves leaders in the field of public participation and Indigenous engagement.

Please join IAP2 Wild Rose for our 2017 Annual General Meeting. The IAP2 Wild Rose AGM will occur during lunch at the IAP2 Wild Rose Signature Event on May 5, to review 2017 and look forward to 2018. Members and non-members are welcome!
