Monday, November 18, 2019, 4:30 PM

The International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) Cascade Chapter is pleased to sponsor IAP2’s Foundations in Public Participation course in November in Troutdale, Oregon (just east of Portland). This is the first time it’s been offered for open registration in the Portland region in four years. The Foundations courses have long been a successful and well-reviewed staple of IAP2 offerings. It is the benchmark for public participation. It has been designed with the input of successful practitioners who work with diverse populations and divergent circumstances throughout the world. The course is divided into two modules, each focusing on one of the two major phases of public participation, planning and techniques. Upon completion of both modules, you will receive a certificate of completion from IAP2.FOUNDATIONS TRAININGSSponsored by the Cascade Chapter (covering Oregon and Southwest Washington) of IAP2 NOVEMBER 18-20 McMenamins Edgefield, 2126 SW Halsey St, Troutdale, OR 97060 Planning for Effective Public Participation: Monday through Wednesday, November 18th - 20th, 8:30am to 4:30pm, Cost: $897 for members; $975 for non-members Training DescriptionPlanning for Effective Public Participation (Three Days)Planning a successful and authentic participation effort is not easy.
