Stage 1 - The Membership & Association Professional (MAP)Code of Conduct,
This is suitable for both individuals and organisations, is the first stage of demonstrating and achieving excellence.The code will enable those who comply to declare their professional and ethical intent and will provide the foundation for each of the stages which follow.
View the MAP Code of Conduct...
It will be possible for individuals and organisations to declare their compliance with the (MAP) Code of Conduct and the (MAP) Competence Framework and, later, for this compliance to form the basis of the (MAP) Peer Review process for organisations.
The code is, therefore, to be the enabler for a series of beneficial enhancements to the capability and competence of membership organisations and professional associations, for individual employees, volunteers and memberships as a whole.
Stage 2 -The Membership & Assocation Professional (MAP) Framework
This is suitable for individuals and organisations, and is the second stage of demonstrating and achieveing excellence. The framework will enable competence; within all functions/departments and at all career stages; to be defined so that individuals and organisations can establish strengths and identify areas of development.
We are currently consulting with the membership and association sector about the proposed content and a focus group will be held on 22nd June 2012. See the right-hand column of this page!
Stage 3 - Peer Review - Following launch of the framework the MemberWise Network will enable a range of benchmarking opportunities.
The peer review process will be facilitated on acceptance by the membership organisation and association sector.
