Decision makers green light the recommendations

IAP2 has been going through an important and ambitious change-journey over the last twelve months.

In September last year the IAP2 Federation Board launched a process of re-design to help us articulate and create the organisation that we want to be - a sustainable and dynamic international association for engagement professionals.

This work started in Denver, at the time of the 2017 North American Conference and has been led T by a diverse working group of members and trainers. Out of these two days came the ‘change committee’ - a group of volunteers tasked with scoping the

IAP2 has been going through an important and ambitious change-journey over the last twelve months.

In September last year the IAP2 Federation Board launched a process of re-design to help us articulate and create the organisation that we want to be - a sustainable and dynamic international association for engagement professionals.

This work started in Denver, at the time of the 2017 North American Conference and has been led T by a diverse working group of members and trainers. Out of these two days came the ‘change committee’ - a group of volunteers tasked with scoping the change and shaping the future of IAP2.

With the input of regional boards and the international board, the change committee came up with seven strategic priority areas and a series of recommendations that will enable us to reshape our international collaborative network that lives and abides by the IAP2 core values. Members were invited to give feedback oand your input was fed into high-level discussions with representatives from each regional board in September 2018 in Victoria, Canada.

We now have seven endorsed strategic priority areas and 36 endorsed recommendations!

These will ensure that the future IAP2 will place significant focus on advocating for and growing engagement practice around the world - both in terms of expanding engagement in new regions, as well as ensuring that IAP2 remains at the cutting edge of new engagement developments including innovations in tools, techniques and technologies.

The recommendations propose that training can be developed and delivered anywhere around the world – and a global committee be tasked with ensuring high quality and consistency for all IAP2 products. Better international connections will be achieved through communities of practice and sharing of lessons learned across the IAP2 global community.

In summary, these strategic priority areas will enable us to become the future-focused international professional organisation that we want to be.

However, there is a lot of work to be done over the next 6-12 months. We have divided the work into four key committees whose first task will be to develop a work plan and then a detailed implementation plan for the agreed recommendations.

The international board will continue to oversee the overall change journey and regional boards will continue to be the overall decision makers.
