Meridian / CBM Staff Exchange, Spring/Summer 2020

As a means of strengthening our connections with local partner organizations, Meridian’s Professional Exchanges Division runs a staff exchange annually for the network of Global Ties Community Based Members (CBMs). These week-long exchanges focus on organizational management and programming best practices.

“I can easily say that Meridian’s CBM Staff Exchange made me a better partner and better programmer. It made me more aware of the larger programmatic goals of NPAs and how we can all achieve them better together.”

  • Rachel Shifman, Citizen Diplomacy International of Philadelphia

This spring or summer, Meridian will host a CBM staff member interested in visiting Meridian. We are also looking for a CBM to host a Meridian staff member. Possible dates are listed on the applications.

Note the following details for a CBM member visiting Meridian:

  • Meridian will cover airfare and airport transfers for the selected participant,
  • Meridian will provide homestay or other accommodations,
  • Meals and ground transportation during the week will be reimbursed,
  • The participant is responsible for any additional expenses.
