Meeting in Mexico City at the 48th World Conference of the International Association of Political Consultants (IAPC), representatives from more than 30 countries elected Wayne Johnson to serve as one of three international Vice-Presidents. The November 11-14, 2015 Mexico City conference addressed new technologies, the proliferation of populist movements and problems in polling, as well as advances in political psychology and decision theory.
Johnson, a Republican, has previously served as President and Chair of the bi-partisan American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC). He is President of The Wayne Johnson Agency, as well as CEO of Gateway Media, both located in Sacramento, CA and has consulted on numerous political campaigns in South America, Europe and Africa.
The IAPC had its beginning in 1968 when Michel Bongrand of France and Joseph Napolitan of the United States invited a handful of veteran political campaign managers from fifteen countries to meet in Paris to exchange information and opinions about the emerging profession of political consulting. At the end of the two-day meeting, they decided to formalize their professional interests by organizing the International Association of Political Consultants (IAPC).
The IAPC will meet in Denver, CO in 2016, and Reykjavik, Iceland in 2017.
