History of ISIN
ISIN Organizational Structure
The International Sustainability Indicators Network is a member-driven organization. The interests and commitment of the members determine the topics of Work Groups and meetings, the subject and content of trainings and other special programs, and the activity level of Work Groups and the listserv. The resources found on the ISIN web site depend largely on input from members about their own work or work of others that they believe exemplifies best practices in the development and use of sustainability indicators.
The administrative structure of ISIN is minimal. The staff -- all part-time -- includes a director, a program manager, and two administrative assistants.
An advisory board, elected by the membership, works with the director to set annual goals, plan programs and develop funding for special projects.
The Work Groups are made up of members who volunteer to develop information, programs and activities on specific topics of interest.
ISIN's activities are funded by membership dues and contributions from sponsors, as well as by grants from various sources for special projects.
