Partner Level Members: Public, private, civic, and non-profit organizations that are signatories to the Georgia Statewide Human Trafficking Task Force Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). As such, these entities receive, share, and/or contribute resources for projects that are directly aligned with achieving collective impact goals. As set forth in the MOA, the “Authorized Representatives” of these organizations shall be active members of Task Force Work Groups and the initiatives produced within them.  With this level of membership, there is a 75% time commitment requirement of: 1) attending the monthly Work Group meetings, and 2) being an active and contributing member of that Work Group. 

Affiliate Level Members: Public, private, civic, and non-profit organizations that are involved in programs or initiatives are affiliated with impacting some aspect of the human trafficking issue.  These entities may elect to not have direct involvement with specific Task Force projects, though they pledge that their organization’s efforts will coordinate with and/or support the work of the Task Force; and are committing to attending the Task Force Quarterly meetings four times/year to stay abreast of the Task Force initiatives. However, if an Affiliate Level Member does indeed make the commitment to become involved with a specific Work Group, it is requested that they be an active and contributing member of that Work Group initiative. 

Work Group Members’ Responsibilities:

  • Work Group Members will serve as the “Authorized Representative” on behalf of their agency/organization

  • Work Group Members will attend and actively participate in monthly Work Group meetings— specifically, contributing in some capacity to all phases of the initiative (i.e. project planning, development, and implementation).

  • Work Group Members will attend the Quarterly Task Force meetings on behalf of their Work Group

  • As the “Authorized Representative,” Work Group Members will keep their agency/organization aware of the Task Force initiatives

Benefits of Active Involvement as a Work Group Member on the Task Force:

  • Learning and exchanging good practices

  • Supporting your agency/organization’s mission

  • Access to professional development experiences and opportunities for staff

  • Networking and peer-to-peer support

  • Increased organizational prestige by participating in a well-designed and organized collective impact partnership

  • Satisfaction of funder mandate to “collaborate” or “partner” with organizations in the field

  • Increased knowledge of and/or access to human trafficking-specific resources

  • Strategic support from CJCC regarding training opportunities, connection to key partners in the field, etc.

  • Access to the Task Force’s performance and outcome information (i.e. the Task Force’s Annual Report)
