3rd Annual Directors Conference

27-28 January 2016: The Directors of INSO platforms from CAR, DRC, Mali, Kenya, Somalia, Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, Palestine and Afghanistan met at the INSO Operational Support Office in Dubai, UAE last week for the 3rd Annual INSO Directors Conference.

The aim of the conference is to create "a single, tangible organisation easily visible to all its members" said INSO founder and Executive Director Nic Lee. 

Participants shared presentations on their individual country programmes before engaging in a day long strategic vision exercise to consider the future of INSO over the coming five years. 

"The conference brought together some of the most impressive people I have ever worked with..." noted Ross Baillie, Director of INSO Afghanistan "...and in giving us the opportunity to shape a shared vision for the future organisation encapsulated everything that makes INSO a privilege to be a part of.

Over the course of just three years INSO has grown beyond simply a network of field platforms and is today providing a coherent global response to the challenge of humanitarian safety with more than 650 organisational members. 

A recent members survey - that drew responses from 320 humanitarian organisations - found that more than 85% of members rated INSO overall performance as Excellent/Good
