Over the past 18 months, the GAMAG International Steering Committee (ISC) has indicated to UNESCO their intention for GAMAG to become a standalone network.
The decision was first discussed by ISC members at their meeting on 18 April 2016 and again in subsequent meetings on 15 and 16 September in New York and 9 November 2016 by Skype. In December 2016, the Chair, Secretary-General and a GAMAG member participated in a meeting at UNESCO in Paris and reiterated their desire to be independent of UNESCO.
UNESCO has advised and assisted GAMAG in developing its new Constitution and Code of Ethics over the past twelve months. The ISC is now ready to reach out to members to discuss these documents and the future of GAMAG. For this to happen, UNESCO needs to hand over the full GAMAG membership list to the ISC.
Please read carefully:
If you wish the ISC to have your membership details you do not need to do anything; the GAMAG International Steering Committee will receive your contact information for future correspondence.
If you do not wish the ISC to have your membership details, please click here to unsubscribe before 18 November 2017.
The GAMAG International Steering Committee will likely be in contact with all remaining members to share the Constitution, Code of Ethics and an action plan for member involvement in order to work towards its founding principles.
