CALP Board Member
The CALP Network is looking for new Board members
Would you like to play a role in shaping the future of the CALP Network and the work we do?
We are looking for new members to join the Board.
The work of the Board is voluntary. Board members must be from a member of the CALP Network.
About the CALP Network
The CALP Network is a dynamic global network of over 90 organisations engaged in the critical areas of policy, practice and research in humanitarian cash and voucher assistance (CVA) and financial assistance more broadly. Collectively, CALP members deliver the vast majority of humanitarian CVA worldwide. CVA now accounts for almost 19% of international humanitarian assistance and is set to increase further.
The CALP Network is at an interesting stage of development. With an exciting strategy in place, CALP is focused on galvanising the diversity and strength of the network to increase impact through collective action.
What makes the CALP Network unique is its diversity. Members currently include local and international non-governmental organisations, United Nations agencies, the Red Cross/Crescent Movement, donors, specialist social innovation, technology and financial services companies, researchers and academics, and independent experts.
CALP is hosted by some of its members and is not a separate legal entity. The CALP Network is governed by a Board of up to 13 individuals drawn from our membership, who guide its strategy and work. All Board positions are voluntary.
Being a member of the Board means being:
- Willing and able to work in the best interests of the CALP Network rather than representing individual or agency interests.
- Able to commit to attend at least 4 online board meetings per year.
- Willing to attend CALP Network online events on an occasional basis.
Applying to be part of the CALP Board
To apply to join the Board you must be working with an organisation that is currently a member of the CALP Network or be an individual expert who is a member of the CALP Network.
All applications are welcome but in order to improve Board diversity and we would particularly welcome applications from people who work with National NGOs; private sector or research organisations.
We are committed to ensuring diversity and encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply.
We particularly welcome applications from people who can contribute time, thought and experience in any of the following areas:
- Global networks / systems thinking / collective action
- Knowledge management and research
- Capacity building, in particular face to face and on-line training
People without a cash background are welcome to apply – as the use of cash transfers is pan organisational and this needs to be better represented in the CALP Board
The Board functions in line with the following documents:
