Job Opening IconIAP2 is a professional association for individuals, groups and businesses working in the field of public participation.  Members exist in over 20 countries and the Association is currently expanding its reach as public participation grows in value through the democratization of decision-making.

For the past ten years the Association has offered a program of professional development to its members and to others interested in learning more about the practice.  The foundation of this program has been a five day Certificate in Public Participation.  In 2009 a further two-day course was developed in Emotion, Outrage and Public Participation. These courses have been held throughout North America, Australasia, UK and Africa.  There are plans to extend these offerings in Europe, Asia, and South America in line with the growth of membership.

IAP2 is poised to grow the practice of public participation and is now seeking to hire a Professional Development Manager for the training program.

Expressions of Interest are being sought from interested individuals and must be received by January 7th  20115:00pm Australian Central Summer Time (ACST) to moira@iap2.org marked Professional Development Manager CONFIDENTIAL.
