Attend the Second Annual State of Public Engagement Conference on July 20
The state of public engagement continues to evolve and change as we navigate community challenges associated with the events of the last 2+ years. In 2020, public engagement went virtual. In 2021, hybrid public engagement started to gain momentum along with a return to in-person public engagement. We can’t help but ask, where are we now post-pandemic(ish)?
Join the International Association of Public Participation's California Chapters, the Davenport Institute of Public Engagement and Civic Leadership from Pepperdine University, and The P2Club for their second annual State of Public Engagement conference: Back to the Future - Where Are We Post-Pandemic(ish)? This free, virtual event will feature a robust conversation on the various modalities now available for public engagement, best practices for determining which is the right fit for your community, and the challenges associated with each modality. You'll also learn what it takes internally to maintain flexibility and adaptability in our current state of public engagement.
