Is “Inform” a legitimate level of public participation? That’s one of the livelier discussions going on right now in our forum on the IAP2 Spectrum. On behalf of the IAP2 Federation, IAP2 Canada is coordinating a review of this foundation of our profession, to ensure that it still meet the needs of the public engagement environment now and into the future.
Our interactive forum has a number of suggested topics, and there’s always room for more, along with opinions and suggestions you might have. Do you think there are elements of the Spectrum that need to be re-thought? Are there “built-in” limitations that need to be addressed? We’ll capture all the comments through the forum and other avenues and present them and recommendations to the Federation board when it meets at the 2015 IAP2 North American Conference in Portland in September.
Speak up! We work hard to ensure people affected by decisions have a voice in them; now it’s our turn to do the same.
