    In BC I think it would be helpful for the Chapters to receive yearly funding for programming without having to apply for it.

     And although we have tried once before to bring a workshop presenter to several chapters and it was not well subscribed (due to timing - Dec and not long lead time for promotion) I think we should try this again. However, before it is booked lets identify as a national org effective timing with long lead times. For example: If not much happens in for example February lets plan for then rather than Dec, April, or September.

    Relationship building with national organizations rather than each chapter building relationships on an one by one basis. So for example: there is an endorsed partnership between CPRS and IAP2, which outlines the scope of the partnership and the types of events the organizations are committed to supporting

    Like any professional association I would like to able to look to IAP2 at any level: 

    - for PD and networking opportunities, 

    - to be part of an organized and strategic initiative that advocates for more and better P2, 

    - to participate in and receive cutting edge research results, and 

    - to volunteer for participation in P2 initiatives that an organization like ours would champion, such as a national conversation about the health of our democracy.

    Again, I agree with what Catherine and Richard have noted above.

    When I speak with both IAP2 members and non-members locally professional networking and peer learning and development are probably the two most common needs that come up.

    Personally, and to emphasize a couple of points that Richard noted, IAP2 needs to be a voice and possibly even a leader in public discourse about active civic/citizen engagement and a tenacious advocate for meaningful public participation especially in out public sector. There is still a very long way to go here and provincial government jurisdictions (Nova Scotia, for example) which are doing public participation very poorly.

    Personally, I want IAP2 to connect me with a community of like-minded people working to advance meaningful public engagement in our country. I want to learn from them and share what I've learned in my own practice.

    For the most part, I expect professional development and networking opportunities to come to me through my local chapter.  I look to the national affiliate to provide opportunities to connect with other practitioners through volunteering, mentoring, and large conferences. I also look to the national affiliate to connect me with research and case studies through webinars and publications/articles.

    I agree that the national affiliate should also be advocating for better P2, as has been said.  In my experience, we haven't done this yet because we've been focused on creating/providing value for members through our various programs and we have limited resources in our volunteer organization.

    What should we give up/put on the back burner in order to divert resources to creating a strong advocacy program that is proactive, strategic, and effective?

    Mes principales attentes envers IAP2 Canada :

    ·       Une fonction administrative afin de bien supporter les sections locales (chapitres) dans leur développement et mettre en relations les responsables des chapitres (apprendre de ses pairs, entendre les bons coups et les pièges à éviter des collègues des autres chapitres, utiliser des méthodes éprouvées par d’autres). IAP2 se fait d’abord et avant tout connaître par les initiatives de ses chapitres (réseautage, événements) et c’est de là que vient le membership;

    ·       faire de la recherche pointue sur la participation publique et partager les résultats avec ses membres;

    ·       partager les meilleurs pratiques en participation publique auprès de ses membres;

    ·       organiser des événements nationaux à valeur ajoutée (colloques, conférences, formations, en personne et en ligne);

    ·       interagir avec les autres fédérations IAP2 à travers le monde et partager les intrants reçus avec les membres;

    ·       prendre position dans certains débats publics (au même titre que certaines organisations professionnelles);

    ·       faire ses frais (rentabilité);

    ·       une organisation qui intègre de plus en plus le bilinguisme dans ses activités;

    ·       se développer dans le meilleur intérêt de ses membres tout en les consultant et en ayant le souci de bien comprendre ce qu’ils souhaitent que soit ou devienne IAP2 Canada.
