Reformulation of Objective 2 of the Strategy → Last 20 years: development of communications sector from predominantly provider of phone services into a diverse, competitive, and interconnected industry. → Complex picture: different technologies, different target groups, different parts of the world, with different technological infrastructure and accessibility. Proposal to change the formulation of CHI’s current strategic objective 2 as follows: “ Work with the communications sector to ensure that children can access child helplines, through their preferred means of communication, whether using traditional or contemporary technologies.”
Membership fee from 100 to 125 euro → Since 2004 annual membership fee of €100 for full members (one of three annual membership requirements along with submission of child helpline data and PSA). → At IC 2010, proposal to increase from €100 to €125 was declined because the membership did not have enough time to discuss and prepare this. → Why does CHI charge a membership fee? Important transaction in setting a value for services received by members - sign of commitment to CHI. → Why is the membership fee important to CHI? CHI raises funds from a variety of donors to cover costs of services to members child helplines and to accumulate modest reserve funds in order to sustain its operation in times of a funding crisis. Additional options Some full members may wish to contribute more than €125 on a voluntary basis. Peer-peer support for child helpline members who struggle to pay their fee.
