Call for Nominations – PtD Coalition Chair and Deputy Chair
Do you have the skills, passion, and drive to lead the People that Deliver (PtD)?
We are looking for a new Chair and Deputy Chair to lead the PtD Coalition. Are you a strategic thought partner who has the skills and experience to provide leadership and guidance to PtD during the next two years? Together, we want to continue to build on the excellent foundations and developments made since our establishment in 2011.
PtD was established in 2011 when 79 institutions came together at the WHO and pledged their support and action to strengthen the capacity of the health supply chain workforce, while promoting the professionalization of the supply chain role within the broader health system. PtD has become the global coalition focused on technical leadership in human resources (HR) for supply chain management (SCM). It does this by advocating for a systematic approach to HR for SCM and for interventions that improve the demand and supply of qualified health supply chain professionals. PtD’s one goal is to create a competent, supported, and adequately staffed supply chain workforce that is deployed across the public and private sectors within the health system. The PtD Coalition was created as the primary governing body that develops strategies and provides broad guidance and oversight to support PtD’s operations and key priorities. 
We are seeking a Chair and Deputy Chair who will serve a term of two years (renewable). The Deputy Chair supports the Chair in their role as requested. If the Chair is temporarily unable to fulfill their duties, the Deputy Chair will serve as the acting Chair in the interim.
