ANDE: Please Share Investment Manager Training – Washington, DC 2017

ANDE

The ANDE Investment Manager Training is an intensive five day course which covers all aspects of investing in small and growing business (SGBs) – from deal sourcing and due diligence to exit strategies. The course will focus on deals across emerging markets, with reference to global case studies.

This five day course is based largely on actual deals made by ANDE members and is designed to be highly interactive and participatory. It will also focus on the social and environmental impact of investing at this level, and how that affects the investment process. This is the only course of its kind that focuses on both investing in emerging and developing markets and impact investing.

If you are interested in gaining additional knowledge on investing in early stage deals in emerging markets from some of the leaders in the field, then this is the course for you.

AFP: Call for Volunteers for the Alliance For Peacebuilding’s Conference in Washington, DC

The Alliance For Peacebuilding

Are you a student, professional, or just someone who is passionate about achieving sustainable peace and security worldwide? YOU could join dozens of experienced peacebuilding practitioners as they come together to share their achievements, insights, and visions for the future of peacebuilding. The Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP) is looking for bright, energetic volunteers to support its staff during the 2017 Annual Conference. Held in Washington, DC from October 11 to 13, the conference will facilitate collaboration and innovation among peacebuilders from around the world as they work toward effective solutions for sustainable peace. The conference presents a unique opportunity for peacebuilders and members of the broader field of conflict and security to assess the challenges to effective peacebuilding – from widening political divisions to pervasive humanitarian crises – and develop solutions for the future.

The Alliance for Peacebuilding is looking for volunteers who are passionate and keen to learn. The ideal volunteer candidate will be well-organized, have superior time-management and communication skills, and will have demonstrable experience taking comprehensive notes. Conference volunteers will have the opportunity to gain an insider’s perspective into the future direction of peacebuilding – not to mention, volunteering is a great resume builder! We welcome interested volunteers from all walks of life, especially those who can bring passion and energy to the conference!

A solid foundation of enthusiastic volunteers is integral to the success of the Annual Conference. AfP relies on volunteers who are responsible, organized, and excited to learn. Volunteers can expect to assist AfP staff with registration, logistics, note-taking, and more! Volunteers may also have the opportunity to sit in on select conference activities – however, volunteer responsibilities will take priority over participation in the conference.

If you are interested in volunteering at the 2017 Annual Conference, please send a copy of your resume/CV and a brief description of your interest in the Alliance for Peacebuilding to Rachelle Faust, AfP’s Annual Conference Associate, at rachelle@allianceforpeacebuilding.org. Your support helps make our Annual Conference a resounding success!

Volunteers receive free admission to the day(s) on which they are volunteering. Lunch will be provided for volunteers on all three days of the conference. In addition, breakfast will be provided on October 12 and 13. For additional details, contact Rachelle Faust, Annual Conference Associate, at rachelle@allianceforpeacebuilding.org.
