We are excited to be moving forward with two awards that recognize the outstanding individuals in the Public Participation field: the Greater Good Award and — new this year! — the Greater Good Emerging Leader Award.

greater good award

The Greater Good Award recognizes an individual whose hard work and dedication have contributed to the furthering of the cause of Public Participation over the years. The first Greater Good Awards were presented in 2017 to Grayce Liu, who has been instrumental in instilling a culture of P2 at the City of Los Angeles, and to Jim Creighton, who was one of the originators of the idea of an International Association for Public Participation Practitioners (as it then was). Who will receive it this year? That’s where you come in! Nominate someone for the Greater Good Award!

For the first time this year,we are thrilled to launch an award for an “up-and-comer”. The Greater Good Emerging Leader Award recognizes a P2 practitioner under the age of 35 (or with less than five years’ experience in the field) who is making a new impact on the profession. Along with a recognition plaque, the recipient will also get free registration to the 2018 IAP2 North American Conference in Victoria.

Nominations are now open for both these awards, so download the Nomination Form here: the deadline is Wednesday, May 2, 2018.
