At IAP2 Australasia, we are about strengthening engagement and advancing the practice. IAP2 Australasia is the largest IAP2 regional affiliate of IAP2 International, with over 10,000 members in Australia and New Zealand.
My first job in a community engagement role was as a project manager for local e-democracy in the UK. I was working at Bristol City Council and had spent the previous few years working in comms roles but didn’t feel they were quite the right fit. The project manager role came about as the council was involved with a central government funded programme of work to see if digital engagement tools could help to increase interest in local government and end up with increased voter turnout.
