New Member Recruitment
The Financial Transparency Coalition (FTC) is governed by a Coordinating Committee of nine NGOs from around the globe who are responsible for establishing the policy and strategic direction of the coalition. The FTC is currently accepting expressions of interest from organizations in the Global South that wish to deepen their engagement with the global financial transparency agenda by joining our Coordinating Committee. We invite interested organizations to review membership requirements and answer a questionnaire.
Organizations interested in joining the FTC CoCom are asked to submit the questionnaire and documents requested therein by midnight EST on November 23, 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our utmost to ensure this process is transparent throughout and expectations are clearly communicated, but we ask for your patience with response time given the volume of submissions. We commit to responding to all submissions by March 11, 2016.
Specific questions about the process can be directed to Sarah Vaugeois at email@example.com.
