PUP Treasurer and long-time interpretive veteran Clark Hancock led a team of 6 PUP members to put together a video presentation for the first virtual conference of the National Association for Interpretation in November. Along with Clark, those who participated included Antonieta Jimenez (Board director), Trace Gale (Board director), Mike Mayer (general member), Luis Camargo (director o PUP's partner organization in Colombia), Jon Kohl (executive director), and Sherwood Shankland (board director) summed it all up. Though the presentation was recorded, several were present live for questions and answers.
The presentation is called "Holistic Approaches to Interpretive Planning, Training & Leadership: PUP Experiences Across America." We use Integral Theory and a Triskelle to symbolize the three main perspectives from which we approach these planning and training processes. This theoretical approach is emerging from PUP's strategic planning and may be an indicator of what is to come for PUP.
The PUP team presents projects from Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras, Colombia, and Chile.
