The ISW Network Executive Team is exploring ways to foster and strengthen regional and cross-regional activities that contribute to building the ISW community at the local level. In doing so, we hope to build greater capacity for sustaining the ISW Program and Network in the decades to come.
To that end we have prepared the ISW Sustainability Plan and have established the new role of Local Representative (LR). We request that each institution and organization with an ISW Team provide the names of 2 or more LRs.
The Local Representatives will be the primary links between their ISW Teams and the ISW Network Executive Team, the ISW International Advisory Committee and others working on Network projects. We expect that LRs will assume coordinating, supportive or participatory roles in regional activities, and that having LRs will be of significant benefit to local ISW Teams.
