International General Assembly

IPM is honored to hold its II International General Assembly in Cleveland, Ohio, between October 8-12, 2018. The International General Assembly is an opportunity for IPM to celebrate its 44th anniversary.

The International General Assembly substituted for IPM’s former three year cycle Strategic Planning Retreat and Related regional Conferences. The International General Assembly included a core group of 40 stakeholders from IPM’s international constituencies—including people from Brazil, Canada, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, England, India, Italy, Kenya, Nepal,  Nicaragua, Uganda, and across the USA.

The participants came together to deepen and broaden the indigenization of all aspects of IPM’s governance, operations, and programs. In addition, the Assembly concluded with the creation and adoption of a new Mission Statement alongside new multi-year Strategic and Operating Plans.

The International General Assembly model reflects the cutting-edge, international governance structure of IPM and, will deepen IPM’s lived commitment to its Mission, Vision, & Core Values, by:

  1. Honoring the Partnership principle central to IPM’s programmatic initiatives
  2. Strengthening the bilateral and multi-lateral sharing that has become the hallmark of IPM’s Regional Conference model
  3. Enhancing its shared commitment to indigenization and interfaith collaboration
  4. Strengthening IPM’s existing strategic planning process
