Our ambition is for INTRAC to be increasingly network-led, with a broader range of consultants and perspectives from around the world, rooted in different regions and connected globally. The network will provide vivid and dynamic spaces for engaging and connecting, drive our thinking and practice, shape agendas and give content to learning and influencing. At the heart of this is our offer to network members.  

Thank you to the many consultants and partners who have fed into the design of our offer. We reaffirmed our network aspirations and the ethical and value-added aspects that were most important. We are at the start of our journey to build our network. The amount of events and activities will evolve over time. The following indicates aspects of the offer and your role within it.
