Member exchange community to be launched in February
As a professional association, a central part of the mission of PHAP is to support its members – experienced humanitarian practitioners from all different backgrounds – to be more effective in their work. As part of this, and in response to the top priorities identified in its 2016 member survey, the association will launch a new dedicated online community in mid-February to facilitate exchange of experience and advice among members of the association.
Following best practice in professional community management, the focus of the community will initially be on facilitating the provision of timely, practical information and resources in response to questions that arise in members’ day-to-day work. There is a tremendous amount of experience to be found in the PHAP membership, with professionals and volunteers at all levels and in all parts of the global humanitarian sector. Connecting members with each other in meaningful and constructive ways is therefore a core function of the association.
PHAP members will receive further information about the launch of the online community in the coming weeks.
