Stacee Adams, Ambassador Program Coordinator
Post-election, pre-holidays. It’s the season of participation and dialogue and the IAP2 Ambassadors have been leading the charge for both at a number of events around the country the last two months. Frankie Burton, with Katz and Associates in San Francisco, is one of them. Why does she do it?
2740. Two thousand seven hundred and forty. That’s how many pieces of IAP2 literature are being shipped off to Ambassadors across the country. Our Ambassadors will be distributing postcards and brochures and engaging decision makers on a range of issues including incorporating P2 into planning, public works, and environmental policy.
They are working to initiate student chapters at universities and chapters in states and regions that don’t have them. They are taking P2 to tribal conferences, city utility and city manager conferences, to young professionals in the planning and sustainability fields, to the Corps of Engineers, the CDC, and to their local networks.
The list of new P2 opportunities is long and it’s growing.
Ambassadors are actively working in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Montana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska, Utah and Washington D.C. This list will also grow as new Ambassadors and opportunities to talk about P2 come online.
Conversations with the Ambassadors are the stuff P2 dreams are made of. Each one passionate and deeply committed to making the world around them better through their work. You’ll get to know their stories and projects in future blog posts. In the meantime, if you feel P2 in the air it’s because our message of pursuing the greater good, good decisions made together is literally in flight and will soon be hand delivered by our bright and brilliant colleagues to new niches all over the country.
