IASNR Strategic Plan – Call for Proposals

In March 2024, IASNR Council agreed to commence the creation of an IASNR Strategic Plan.  We have created a Request for Proposal (RFP) to engage a consultant to help facilitate the co-creation of the plan with both council and all our members between August 2024 and January 2025.  This will be an exciting opportunity for all of us to have our say about the future strategic direction of the association, with particular focus on conferences, the journal, membership and internationalisation through the hubs, hybrid engagements and partnerships.

The Executive Team (Kelly, John and I) know that many of your have excellent skills and demonstrated experiences in facilitation and strategic planning.   We therefore cordially invite proposals from you as individuals or as a consortium in response to the attached RFP.   Proposals are due by the 17th May 2024, but there is some flexibility in the due date by negotiation. If you would like to know more about the strategic planning process or are interested in submitting a proposal, you are welcome to contact me via email at  christopher.raymond@ helsinki.fi  or via WhatsApp/phone call at +358 50 556 0850.

I look forward to seeing you at the IASNR 2024 Conference, either in-person or online.

Best wishes,
