Intermountain Chapter

IAP2 USA is an organization that leads, advances, and advocates for best practices in public participation. It is a community for people who believe good decisions can be made together. The IAP2 USA Intermountain Chapter serves Montana, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, and Wyoming.


If you are interested in getting involved with this chapter please contact your State Representative (see Chapter Officers list). 

What is P2? 

IAP2 views public participation (P2) as any process that involves the public in problem solving or decision making and uses public input to make decisions.


Public Participation includes all aspects of identifying problems and opportunities, developing alternatives and making decisions. Public entities are increasingly bringing the people they serve into the decision-making process and that's where we, as P2 professionals, specialize. 

IAP2 Intermountain Chapter Scholarships

IAP2 Intermountain is pleased to announce that we have launched our  new scholarship program. The goals of the program are to build relationships with academic institutions throughout our five state region, introduce public participation as a profession to students while they are still taking classes, and create opportunities for employers to recruit talented young professionals. The scholarship program is an exciting new part of IAP2 Intermountain and will help the organization for years to come as more students join. 

Interested in applying? Contact Macey Mortimer for more information.

This year there are three scholarship winners. They will be involved in a variety of ways throughout the year, and we are looking forward to getting to know them as they join our team.
