Complete the CaLP Membership Application Form found here.
CaLP will acknowledge receipt of the application form within 1 week.
CaLP will review the application and undertake necessary evaluations and assessments.
CaLP may request applicants to submit additional documentation as necessary, for example, proof of current legal registration, proof of social corporate responsibility/humanitarian principles or equivalent, most recent organisational annual report, including audit information.
Applications will be reviewed by the Board of Directors at the next meeting in April 2017. Applicants will then be contacted with the result of their application.
When applying for membership, prospective members also have the ability to apply for membership to the Technical Advisory Group and/or express their interest for a position on the Board of Directors.
Please note, only members may apply for the Technical Advisory Group or the Board of Directors. If you are not a CaLP member, we welcome your membership application together with your TAG/Board Application.
The CaLP Technical Advisory Group (TAG) is the technical advisory body of the CaLP partnership, providing expert technical advice to the implementation of substantive work of CaLP. The input of the TAG ensures cross-sectional representation and the maintenance of high technical standards and field linkages – and ensures that TAG-member led initiatives contribute to a common workplan.
The TAG currently comprises 22 members, and its work-plan is managed through technical working groups aligned with CaLP’s global thematic priorities.
CaLP is currently not accepting applicants to the TAG – but will inform its membership as when places become available (in line with its terms of reference). Members who are not part of the TAG are strongly encouraged to take part in thematic working groups (WGs).
The CaLP Board of Directors is the governing body of the CaLP network and is dedicated to advancing the mission, values, strategies, goals, priorities, and policies of CaLP. It is currently comprised of 11 voting members, elected from a diverse array of organisations from the CaLP membership. Click here to download the Board of directors’ terms of reference.
The Board has taken the decision to reserve 1 seat for an individual from a Private Sector actor. The Board would hope that this individual would have the ability to advocate and champion CaLP within the private sector/ their own company.
The individual will be expected to facilitate the connectedness between humanitarian and private sector initiatives. This should include a strong focus on financial service provision, but should also include broader opportunities for collaboration in market-based humanitarian programming. S/he will also be expected to facilitate opportunities for fundraising from private sector sources.
The private sector board member will be expected to follow the guidelines for public-private partnerships for humanitarian action as outlined in “Guiding Principles for Public-Private Collaboration for Humanitarian Action” prepared by the World Economic Forum and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA)
There is a remaining unreserved seat on the CaLP Board of Directors.
To increase diversity on the Board, individuals corresponding to some or all of the following criteria are strongly encouraged to apply:
For further information on the Board of Directors and criteria please see the Board Operational Document. Please note that whilst Board members bring the experience from their own organisation, they serve in an individual capacity.
To express interest, the nominee should send a copy of their CV and a short motivational paragraph to the Membership Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the appropriate area of the Membership application form when their organisation applies for Membership.
