IAP2 logo

NCDD is a powerful network of some of the most active and innovative public engagement professionals and practitioners out there, and we are excited to have the opportunity to use the power of our network to find a new board member for our partners at the International Association for Public Participation’s US branch (IAP2 USA).

IAP2 USA just announced today on their blog that the organization is accepting nominations for new board members, and we would be thrilled to see some of our great NCDD members being nominated. Do you have a friend, colleague, or mentor who is dedicated to growing the public participation field? Then submit your nomination today! You can read the IAP2 USA announcement in full below or find the original post on their blog here.

Help us fill the IAP2 USA Board

The 2013 Board of IAP2 USA is seeking nominations for our 2014 board. Who do you know that will help our organization fulfill its potential? A professional colleague? A respected co-worker? Maybe it’s YOU!

Our Board is a working board that continues to expand the services and offerings to our IAP2 USA members. We work both with U.S. members and internationally on initiatives to advance the practice. In our third year as an affiliate of our international organization, we continue to evolve collaborating with our members and other organizations as the preeminent organization in this field. To realize our aspirations to remain a vibrant new organization, we invite you to consider the following attributes for new Board members:

  • Geographic and ethnic diversity
  • Diverse professional backgrounds, from government, academia, non-profits, private sectors, including those who work in the field, and those in related fields
  • Strong work ethic and willingness to bring their full talents and energies to the work of IAP2 USA
  • Public participation experience in private, public, non-profits, and grassroots volunteer work

We hope for a pool of candidates for the Board with institutional memory and new ideas and experiences — a diverse pool from which members will elect a new Board responsive to their needs.
