The DDPI Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2021, held this November, is now available to view online.
This was the second year that we ran the AGM virtually using Zoom and recorded the meeting for the community. Don’t worry if you missed it, the recording has been uploaded to our Vimeo channel and added to the DDP Library:
Our committee, working group and operational team leads discussed their work from the last year, their future plans and ongoing racial equity and social justice reflections. These conversations were between Global Development and Community Development, Research and Communications, Racial Equity Social Justice and Training, and Certification and Renewal and Organization Certification.
Professional Standards provided an update, we heard about DDP in education and DDP PACE, and most excitingly, the DDP Worldwide Working Group introduced our ambitious plans for DDP, DDPI and DDP Connects UK going forward.
Thank you to all who participated and worked to make the meeting such a success. It was wonderful to see so many of our community attend.
DDPI AGM Survey
In order to address our themes of reflection, accountability and community, even if you didn’t make it on the day, please can you help us by filling in our post-AGM survey, link below:
All responses are anonymous and untracked, unless you add your email address to the optional field at the end of the survey. If you do choose to supply your email address, it will be removed from the main survey data, and only used to respond to you about your questions, interest in volunteering and/or signing up to our newsletters and Google Group/Listserv.
We haven’t included questions about sexuality, sex and gender in this survey due to the current processes for keeping this data safe. We’re sorry if this has felt exclusionary, going forward we’ll be ensuring all our systems allow for the safe collection of this information. If you would like to discuss this or let us know this information separately, you can email me at the address below.
The survey deadline has been extended to Monday, December 13th, 2021. If you have any questions or want to get in touch separately please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
