Over 40 professional development opportunities!
New ideas! A chance to re-energize!

IAP2 is thinking of you and your families, hoping that you and yours are staying safe and healthy as we all deal with COVID-19 and its effects. We know that with COVID 19 we are in ever changing times. Recognizing that, the IAP2 Canada Executive Committee has asked the Conference Steering Committee to continue planning for the Banff Conference. Why? We still don’t have enough information to make a final decision and they wanted to provide something to look forward to. Both IAP2 Canada and IAP2 USA will continue to monitor the situation and will make a final go/no go decision in June or early July, earlier if possible. We know that this is not ideal but, we are doing the best we can and we thank you for your patience, understanding and support.

For now let’s celebrate the Conference’s Schedule at a Glance. After the period of “involuntary layoff”, you’ll want to get back into the game, to elevate your engagement and be part of the mountains of possibility this profession has to offer. So what better way to do that, than by joining us for the 2020 IAP2 North American Conference – September 9 through 11 in Banff, Alberta! There’ll be 35 sessions, half a dozen workshops, networking opportunities galore and of course, the Core Values Awards gala!

Take a look at the NEW Schedule-at-a-Glance. Each session has a “sub-theme”, like “Building from the Grassroots Up”, “Equity and Diversity for Better Solutions” or “Failure Makes Better” From building relationships among stakeholders, to using research for planning initiatives, to giving children and youth more of a voice to building relationships among stakeholders, you’ll find lots to energize, rejuvenate and give you “fresh air” in your P2 work.

We know what you’re thinking: “I have a P2-related business. How can I support this brilliant conference and show how I feel about P2?” We’re glad you asked! We have some new and innovative sponsorship opportunities! Check out the many levels of sponsorship we have to offer! That includes the 2020 Conference app: a new way for Conference-goers to stay connected and for your company or organization to start and build new relationships!
