Program Associates

Island Resources maintains a floating list of aboout 80 Program Associates who are available for short-term assignments to support Foundation projects in small tropical islands around the world. Program Associates are required to have both outstanding technical skills and significant working experience in small tropical islands.

We are always anxious to expand our list of qualified Associates—if you think you can meet the standards set out above and would like to apply to be listed as an Island Resources Foundation Program Associate, write to Bruce Potter at the Washington DC office, or send an e-mail message to irf@irf.org.
