IAP2 Canada to launch Core Values Awards in 2014.
We are excited to have our own version of "made-in-Canada" Core Values Awards in the works. IAP2 Canada will premier the new program this September at the 2014 IAP2 North American Conference in Winnipeg. Read more about it here.
CORE VALUES AWARDS - THE WEBINAR
It’s Award Season! We’ve had the Grammy’s and the Oscars, so the next logical progression is (drumroll!) our own Core Values Awards.
To get our minds focused on the kinds of projects that could be nominated for awards -- and get us thinking about innovative approaches for future projects, the March and April webinars presented by IAP2 Canada and IAP2 USA will feature colleagues from both countries who have earned "two thumbs up" -- or, more specifically, Core Values Awards at the 2013 IAP2 North American Conference.
With this "Entertainment" theme, we begin, fittingly, in Hollywood -- West Hollywood, to be precise, where the city received Project of the Year for its 2013 Community Study. On Tuesday, March 11, project leads Corri Planck and Daphne Dennis will share their experience with us.
They'll be joined by Tracy McCabe, whose team from the City of Calgary received "Highly Commended" for "Route Ahead - the 30-Year Strategic Plan for Calgary Transit".
On Tuesday, April 8, we'll meet Tyrone Reitman from Healthy Democracy Oregon, whose team shared the Project of the Year award at Salt Lake City for The Oregon Citizens' Initiative, and John Lewis of Intelligent Futures in Calgary, who received International Project of the Year in the Member-at-Large category for OurWascana, a visioning project marking the 50th anniversary of Regina's famous park.For more information and to register, click here.
Please note: the March 11 webinar takes place at 2pm Eastern time, but on April 8 only, the webinar will start at 3pm Eastern.
Important information on registering for webinars
Registration for our Learning Webinars
is a two-step process. You receive a confirmation email from IAP2 Canada to indicate that you're signed up for the webinar; it includes a link to a separate website, belonging to Citrix, which provides the actual webinar service. You need to register there as well, to reserve your "seat" and get information on how to log in.
Seating is limited to the first 95 attendees, so don't delay once you get that confirmation email.
These webinars are recorded for the use of IAP2 members in their professional development; they can be found here.
IAP2 Canada, in partnership with IAP2 USA, presents these monthly webinars, every second Tuesday of the month at 2pm Eastern time. They are free for members, and only $50 (plus GST) for non-members.
President's Message for February
Anne Harding, President, IAP2 Canada
A belated Happy New Year to you all!
I hope this message finds you having had an enjoyable holiday season with family and friends and getting into the groove of a new year. As we gear up for 2014, I find myself reflecting on last year’s challenges and accomplishments and thinking about what might be different for me and my P2 practice this year. As I “reflect forward” (a hint at this year’s conference theme), I’m reminded of Stephen Covey’s advice to sharpen one’s saw; that is, to make time for physical, mental, social/emotional, and spiritual renewal in the interest of preserving and enhancing oneself.

The State of P2 Research in Canada
We're often asked questions like, "What's happening in P2 in the rest of Canada?" and "Is there any new research I can use in my practice?"
IAP2 Canada's Research Initiative has now released its first report on The State of P2 Research in Canada
. In the months to come, you'll be hearing about further moves in this area, and invited to take part in various ways.
More research-related documents are available for IAP2 members only. Click here to find them.
The video of the February 11 webinar, "Our Research - Your Toolkit", is available here
for members and paid-up participants.
