GRSPSociety is an open network of organizations and individuals committed to advancing Romania s development and modernization through civic involvement andMessage 1 of 2 , Feb 2, 2009View SourceGRSPSociety is an open network of organizations and individuals committed to advancing Romania's development and modernization through civic involvement and professionalism. GRSPSociety has members in 12 countries and is currently expanding to include students and professionals from all countries. More information can be found here: http://www.grspsociety.org GRSPSociety is launching a call for the creation of specialized working groups. The GRSPSociety working groups are intended to become the main functional units of the association. They will allow our members and partners to interact on a professional basis and are meant to become a forum for interaction and debate as well as to provide an opportunity for continuous professional development for those involved. The following working groups will be formed: Democracy and Participation (WG-DP)Education and Research (WG-ER)Culture and Arts (WG-CA)Business and Finance (WG-BF)Public Administration and
Public Policy (WG-PA/PP)International Migration (WG-IM)Romania's Image Abroad (WG-RO) The working groups will be primarily but not exclusively focused on the following key activities: policy research, advocacy, civic campaigning, communication with members and non-members, organization of academic/public events, and specialized projects. The membership of each working group typically will typically consist of: - Graduate students working towards their MA or PhD degrees- Early career professionals (0-5 years working experience) - Mid career professionals (5-10 years working experience) Membership in the working groups is free, voluntary, and not limited by geography. At the November 2008 founding conference of the GRSPSociety in Budapest, the seven groups mentioned above were tentatively approved. Depending on the interest shown in this round, they will be formally established or remain idle
until the next call. GRSPSociety is looking forward to receiving proposals for other working groups which may address challenges currently faced by Romanian society. It is generally expected that the working groups will run their own promotion and activities, with the assistance of the GRSPSociety Extended Board. It is also expected that they will contribute to the agenda of future GRSPSociety events (e.g. GRSP Annual Conference). If you are interested in joining, please submit a CV by the 1st of March 2009 to the following address: office@.... In the subject line, please enter the acronym of the working group(s) of interest (not more than two). Details about the formation and composition of the groups will follow by 7th of March. Welcome aboard,GRSPSociety Board
