We are glad to inform you that we are now a member of the Society for International Development (SID), which is a global forum of individuals and institutions concerned with sustainable economic, social and political development. Today, SID has over 3,000 members in 80 countries and over 45 local chapters worldwide. It works with more than 100 associations, networks, and institutions involving parliamentarians, academics, students, political leaders, and development experts, both at local and international levels.
PMCG is one of those members, who can attend all the highly productive and interesting events implemented by the society. SID achieves its mission as a forum for the development community through regional and topical workgroup events, monthly chapter events, and special programs. SID also holds three annual events, including a conference on relevant trends and issues in international development, a career fair for entry-level and mid-level professionals, and a gala dinner that celebrates standout achievements in our field.
The Society for International Development (SID), founded in Washington, D.C., United States, in 1957, is committed to stimulating dialogue and cooperation on global development issues, enhancing skills, knowledge and understanding among development practitioners, and providing a network for individuals and organizations working in various sectors of international development. Over the years, SID has consistently been at the forefront of shaping the theory and practice of development, challenging existing practices and suggesting alternative approaches.
Institutional members are a vital part of SID-Washington’s membership and reflect and represent the diversity of the international development community: non-governmental organizations, multilateral development institutions, private sector corporations, universities, and government agencies. This expansive membership contributes to the ongoing, dynamic exchange of ideas and information through SID.
