ISLP holds October 2017 US Board Meeting
ISLP Board Members gathered in Washington DC earlier today to conduct their scheduled October 2017 Board Meeting. Chaired by Joseph Bell and held at Hogan Lovells the three hour session was a fantastic opportunity to bring together Board Members and Staff. Those who couldn’t attend in person dialed in from around the world to discuss subjects ranging from new programs, strategy, finances, and staffing.
After passing the much discussed Strategy document the Board considered appropriate measures of effect for development activity and the latest budget proposals for the organization looking forward to 2018. Discussions on leadership transition were then held in private. Once the session reconvened Program Officers gave a brief presentation about the organization’s work in The Gambia, focused on ISLP’s partnerships with other development bodies and the need to continue to develop ‘close ties with a number of different ministries and a number of different projects’. Asset tracing, truth and reconciliation, legislative and regulatory reforms as well as deep assistance with capacity building were mentioned alongside other activities.
