The article reports on a workshop that sought to define the responsibilities, skills, qualifications and aptitude required of humanitarian logisticians. Participants of the HELP Forum-sponsored workshop collaborated with people from various organizations to examine and edit job description modules. The job description template would demonstrate competencies of humanitarians who work in commercial logistics. The model will also allow HELP to determine what training resources are needed to build their professional status.
