Managed by an Executive Director and Deputy Director, with others acting as Project Managers, Programme Directors, and Research Coordinators, considerable expertise is shared within the team. This office supports the association by delivering services to MembersPartners and the Board. The majority of its efforts focus on implementing projects and actions identified in the annual Action Plan according to its five Areas of Work and four Topics of Work. Project Managers are responsible for a wide range of projects. The Programme Director and Research Coordinator design and oversee complementary actions. The Director has overall responsibility and fosters partnership development and advocacy.
