OSAC is a valuable platform for information sharing amidst the current coronavirus outbreak. Although concerns about the coronavirus are worldwide and are being discussed on many of our networks, our most targeted discussions on the topic are taking place in our Pan Asia Regional Council (PARC) Google Group, which is geared towards U.S. private sector organizations operating in Asia.
If you are interested in more frequent updates, informal questions from other organizations, and ongoing benchmarking updates on the coronavirus, we recommend you join the PARC. Information may continue to come through all of our Groups, but joining the PARC will ensure you have the most up to date information our OSAC networks have to offer.
HOW TO JOIN PARC
To join the PARC, go to the Groups tab, then Common Interest Councils, and hit Apply next to Pan Asia Regional Council. You must be logged in to view this page. Once your application is reviewed you will be added to the Google Group so you can join the conversation.
You must be an OSAC constituent in order to join the PARC. Unfortunately, the PARC does not accept government users or newsletter subscribers at this time.
Please note that this group operates under the Chatham House Rule, meaning that members may use information received but the identity and affiliation of any member may not be revealed. Do not forward emails or information shared without the permission of the authors.
OTHER OSAC NETWORKS
We welcome you to join OSAC’s other regional councils, including those for Europe, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East and North Africa. These platforms are great for anyone working or traveling in those regions, and particularly for those that have a regional portfolio.
We welcome you to join our sector specific groups as well. However, there are membership requirements you must meet in order to participate, as the groups are typically limited to members of the sectors described.
If you have any questions on how to better leverage OSAC’s networks, please email OSAC’s Outreach and Engagement team at osacCCO@state.gov and we will be happy to help!
