The preparations are made, the schedule is set and all the spaces have now been taken: the 2016 IAP2 North American Conference is ready to go in Montréal September 28-30. The Conference has been sold-out for over a month, and we’ve gradually been able to go through the waiting list to ensure that as many people as possible can participate. We are expecting up to 240 participants to join us and we are EXCITED!
If you’re missing the Conference, though, you can still catch up on the 30-plus session presentations on the program. After the conference we will post as many presentations as possible on our website, and there will be videos of the keynote speeches by J-P Gladu of the Canadian Centre for Aboriginal Business and Dicki Chhoyang, formerly of the Central Tibetan Administration and we will announce the Core Values Awards winners. What’s more, the IAP2 Monthly Webinars in the months to come will feature some of the more popular sessions.
There are still spaces available (as of this writing) for the pre-Conference sessions. “Indigenous Engagement Workshop” (click here to register) and “P2 the Québec Way” (click here to register) both take place on Wednesday, Sept. 28. The sessions are free for those attending the conference; $50 for IAP2 members not attending the conference; $50 for students or members of community groups or non-profits who are not attending the conference; and $75 for non-members not attending the conference.
