A warm welcome to all our IAP2 Southern Africa members, friends of IAP2, and other interested stakeholders and groups across the African Continent. It is indeed a privilege once more to be part of this growing family of IAP2 and to have the opportunity to engage with your on this platform. 2017 is surely the year of flourishing, expansion and more networking for the Affiliation.
Together with the Board Members of IAP2SA, we commit to a year of more interactive engagements aimed at sharing valuable and relevant information. Our objective is to enhance the daily activities and the profession of public participation practitioners, the image of the Affiliate and more so: to ensure that you are kept up to date on information within the public participation and stakeholder engagement field.
We hope to achieve our objective through the use of various social media, including but not limited to dedicated webinar sessions, an IAP2SA Whatsapp group, Facebook and Twitter updates, through our face-to-face board and Annual General Meetings, upcoming trainings and social events that we will be hosting during the year.
We cannot achieve this alone and thus urge you to take part in this exciting yet transforming journey with us.
