PAC’s news and insights are a community-powered, collaborative journalism forum which draws content from its users and syndicated content from mainstream sources. Volunteer members can write articles, seed links to external content, and discuss news items submitted by both members and professional journalists. With most news sites offering a one-way stream of mainstream articles chosen by staff editors, PAC puts its members in charge. Community members can publish their own articles, share other interesting content they have identified, and participate in spirited debates about anything and everything that’s happening in the world at any given moment. In addition, PAC’s membership newsletter serves as a social news platform for the community to expand their knowledge and views.
Volunteer members are individuals that commit their personal time and resources to the Council’s mission and initiatives, this includes PAC Correspondents and Representatives that regularly report on issues of African interest in their respective areas. Selected volunteers are awarded with complementary Professional Membership.
