The mandate of the CAIDP Conference and Programming Committee is to foster excellence in Canadian international development professionals and deliver quality professional development to CAIDP members. The Committee works to help members develop the knowledge, skills and tools to be globally competitive and make high quality contributions to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals by:
- Organizing and promoting short webinars and programmes on specific topics to enhance knowledge;
- Organizing and promoting conferences to bring members together for learning, sharing and networking;
- Developing web-based learning products to ensure that members have access no matter where they are in the world.
The Conference and Programming Committee liaises with other members of the international development community to ensure that CAIDP members are abreast of new ideas and knowledge throughout the sector. It often works on collaborative events with CAIDP partners.
