U is for…UK and Ireland Liaison #AZChallenge

Kirsty, our Chapter Organiser (i.e. me) has just taken on the role of UK/Ireland Chapters Liaison. What that means is that she is the link between the HPA and the Chapters in this international location, feeding news back and forward and celebrating the successful campaigns that chapters work tirelessly towards.

At the moment, on the HPA website there are 15 registered UK Chapters and 1 in Ireland.

We’d love to expand this.

If you’ve been inspired by some of things Phoenix Rising have been getting up to and are interested in getting involved – check out the Find a Chapter page to see if there is a chapter near you, or fill in the Start a Chapter form here. You can also find more guidance on starting a chapter on the Chapters Community Forums.

Once registered new Chapter Organisers will work through an online training program, and will have monthly contact with their liaison – as well as being able to contact Kirsty to discuss any challenges they are having.

Currently Chapters can be based in Schools, Universities, Communities or Libraries.

So, are you a school librarian, 6th former or university student that knows a group of people that love Harry Potter and similar stories that would love to take this to the next level by joining a real life Dumbledore’s Army and inspiring social change in their community? Then make today that day.
