Has your organization recently joined the ISC as a Member? Are you a newly elected office bearer, new staff member or newly appointed focal point to your Member organization? Is your organization interested in membership?

In the frame of our Knowledge Sharing series for ISC Members, the ISC is facilitating a welcome and question & answer session for those wanting to learn more about the ISC’s work. In particular, we will cover:

  • General introduction of the ISC
  • ISC governance structure
  • ISC Action Plan projects, partnerships and other ISC activities
  • ISC membership value proposition
  • Opportunities and mechanisms for engagement and collaboration for ISC Members
  • Responsibilities of ISC Member focal points
  • Young Academies and Associations

The online meeting over Zoom will provide an opportunity to meet Salim Abdool Karim (ISC Vice-President for Outreach and Engagement), and Mei-Hung Chiu (ISC Governing Board member), to ask questions and to provide feedback to the ISC on our communication and engagement with the membership.

All staff members, office bearers and represenatives of ISC Members, Affiliated Bodies and organizations interested in ISC membership are warmly invited to participate. Please register below (the content of the two meetings is the same, but we are facilitating the session twice to accommodate all time zones).
