THE SCENE IS SET!
ANNOUNCING THE SCHEDULE FOR THE
2017 IAP2 NORTH AMERICAN CONFERENCE!
More than 40 sessions! Three pre-Conference workshops! Something new: Pathways! The schedule is now set for the 2017 IAP2 North American Conference, September 6 – 8 in Denver, Colorado.
This year’s theme, “Pursuing the Greater Good – P2 for a Changing World”, couldn’t be more timely, and once again, you have an opportunity to consider that theme from a variety of angles and share perspectives and insights.
The pre-conference workshops cover three important topics for P2 professionals: “Bringing More People to the Table”, “Digital Engagement” and “Transportation and P2”.
Pathways are “deep dives” into specific topics; three-hour discussions where you get to set the agenda, co-create and co-host. Those taking part will be able to set the physical and intellectual environment where a small group of people can tackle big questions that ultimately contribute to the field. With Pathways, you can expect an experience that is in-the-moment, dynamic, engaging … and demanding!
From now until June 30, you can take advantage of the early-bird price: US $550 for members and $700 for non-members. For that, you get:
- workshops or field trips, Wednesday, Sept. 6
- the welcome reception, Wednesday, Sept. 6
- all sessions and pathways
- continental breakfast
- lunch and lunchtime activities
- the Core Values Awards gala, Thursday, Sept. 7 – dinner, entertainment and a chance to applaud the best in the business
Conference Scholarships. We want to make sure as many people as possible can participate in a conference on participation, so once again this year, we’re excited to offer scholarships. Full-time students, non-profit staff members, new community advocates and active members of AmeriCorps may apply to have their conference fee covered. Download the application form here.

See you in the Mile-High City!
