Learning Lunch:

Coming Back Together

Online | 12 pm- 1 pm

Have you facilitated in person after a long break recently? If so, have you noticed that people are behaving differently than you remember? If not, are you worried you'll be thrown into a real-life Reddit thread? 

Have no fear, IAP2 Intermountain is here for you! This month's Learning Lunch is a facilitated discussion about the state of social discourse coming out of the pandemic and what that means for the work we do as public participation professionals. 

Join us Thursday, June 23 at 12 p.m. for a bit of story telling, a bit of therapy, a bit of lessons learned, and a bit of pep talking as we navigate this new dynamic.

Learning Lunch: 300 West Reconstruction

Online | 12-1 p.m.

Join staff from Salt Lake City government and Avenue Consultants to learn more about SLC's 300 West street reconstruction project and how it's helped set a "gold standard" for public engagement in Salt Lake City.


Public engagement was key to this reconstruction project because it was much more than just replacing aging pavement. Salt Lake City is taking this opportunity to improve mobility of all users while supporting economic development and future growth. Christianna Johnson and Stacee Adams will discuss the outreach done and lessons learned for this IAP2 USA Core Value award-winning project.


Engagement project activities included an ADA Accessibility Tour, 3D modeling exercise with Legos, business workshops, pedestrian intercept surveys and more.

Learning Lunch: Hybrid Engagement Discussion

Online | 12-1 p.m.

Join the  IAP2 Intermountain Chapter on Thursday, March 10 at noon for a lunchtime discussion on hybrid meetings, the good, the bad and the ugly.


We had a great discussion in Summer 2021 as more organizations moved to hybrid, mixing in-person and online engagement. This discussion will serve as a  follow up to share our highs and lows from the past 8 months and to learn from each other.
