Called to action by the COVID-19 pandemic and the critical role of partnerships in ensuring an equitable, swift, and coordinated international response, Concordia has launched a dedicated programming and member engagement track to support partnerships addressing natural disaster and pandemic preparedness, response, recovery, and resiliency on a year-round basis.
To achieve the Convene-Connect-Create goals of the Alliance, Concordia is launching an Action Alliance Fund designed to spur innovation and collaboration through catalytic capital. The goal of the Fund is to financially support the development and scale of intra-Alliance cross-sector partnerships in the disaster and pandemic space.
Membership is available on an organizational, not individual, basis as the goal of this work is to align efforts across large organizations. Individuals outside of member organizations may participate as speakers in affiliated programming.
Membership is available only to Concordia Patron Members (Regional and Global). Any new organizations that wish to get involved in the Alliance must become a Concordia Member.
Each member can designate up to 3 points of contact for the Alliance, one of which must be a member of the executive leadership team who will be made available for high-level programmatic opportunities.
Participation in quarterly Alliance meetings by at least one representative from each member organization is expected.
Each member organization is expected to fill out the initial member profile, as well as submit partnership summary forms for any current partnership/impact initiatives related to the work of the Alliance and those derived or inspired from the Alliance, in a timely fashion.
