Here is your opportunity to make sure the 2020 IAP2 North American Conference is the best experience yet! We have three committees that need YOU and your skills! Check out these personal messages from the committee chairs!
PROGRAM COMMITTEE — Jane Purvis
Have you ever dreamed about having a bigger impact in the P2 world? If yes, then please join me on the Program Committee for the 2020 Conference. We will get to create the call for session proposals, look through proposals from cutting edge practitioners, and decide what conference-goers will learn at the premier P2 professional development opportunity in this part of the world.
Here is your chance to spend a few quick but intense months that will have lasting impacts on the practices of our colleagues. As the Chair of the committee, I’m hoping for lots of diverse viewpoints and lenses to our practice – the only consistent criteria I’m thinking about for the team are commitment, curiosity and a willingness to work collaboratively.
Take a read of the call and let us know if you are interested. I’m looking forward to connecting and hearing about your vision for our conference program and how we can work together to make Banff 2020 a dynamite experience!
SPONSORSHIP COMMITTEE – Chair, Kim Hyshka
Do you enjoy building relationships and finding opportunities to bring shared value – I sure do, which is why I signed up to lead the Sponsorship Committee. It means that as a team – we will put together relevant, compelling opportunities for potential conference sponsors so that we can support a diverse conference program. It also means our attendees and vendors get to meet and experience some of the best people, firms, organizations and products in the field.
So I’m asking you to join me on the sponsorship committee. If you are new to the field – this is a great opportunity to meet people – if you are long in the field I’d love to lean into your wisdom. Yes this role does mean asking for money but with a history of long standing sponsors, excellent support from IAP2 Canada staff, I’m confident we’ve got it covered.
So join me today and let’s have some fun.
LOCAL FUN COMMITTEE — Chair, Terry Koch
Hello, my name is Terry Koch and I’m proud to be the Fun Committee Chair for Banff 2020, where there will be mountains of opportunity for learning, networking and fun. IAP2 has been the ‘go to’ organization for engagement practitioners like me wanting to improve their skills for nearly 30 years. And an annual conference has been a mainstay. I’ve participated in 17 of them in 4 different countries on 3 different continents. Thousands of delegates like me have benefitted from the hard work of volunteers and staff to stage these valuable events.
But is not always about education and learning when you attend the conference. Delegates take the time to network, celebrate success at the annual gala and explore the host community and have some good old fashioned fun. So, if you are like me and want to help delegates enjoy the social aspect of conference and really enjoy the Banff area, why not join us? Apply to be on the Banff 2020 Fun Committee today! Thank you.
Is your appetite sufficiently whetted? Remember: you can get involved in any of these committees from anywhere in North America, so read the descriptions, find your fit, and let’s get busy!
Deadline to apply is October 24th, 2019. If you have any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
