Dear Member, Partner, Observer Organizations and friends,
We are happy to officially invite you to the 13th General Assembly of Cooperation and Development Network Eastern Europe, which will take place between 12-13 March 2022 in Tbilisi, Georgia.
We invite you to nominate your delegates to the General Assembly (GA) which is the highest decision-making body of CDN. Every Member and Partner Organization has a right to nominate two delegates and Observer Organization has a right to nominate one delegate to the General Assembly. Other representatives of Member, Partner and Observer organizations are invited as Guests. Other guests (members of the WGs, CDN partners and funders and representatives of other Green organisations in Europe and wider) are also welcomed to join the GA.
Note: We strongly encourage you to follow the good practice of having one experienced delegate (preferably, someone who has been to previous GAs) and one less experienced delegate (to ensure transfer of knowledge).
Prior to the GA, CDN will organise several other events, the main of which is a political conference on the Future of Eastern Europe (more information on the conference will follow very soon) on 10-11th of March. We hope that we see you all joining us for the conference too!
Please read the following FINANCIAL CONDITIONS and general information below very carefully, before you proceed with nominating and registering your delegates. The Financial Conditions includes all the important information regarding financial and reimbursement rules for all the attendees of the GA, no matter if they come as delegates, candidates, guests or in some other role.
We would kindly ask MOs, POs and OO to nominate and register delegates by filling in THIS FORM by 13th February 2022, midnight CET.
In order for CDN to be able to provide financial support for the delegates’ travel costs, the above-proposed deadlines shall apply. If the deadlines do not suit you, do not hesitate to write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and inform us about the possible time of a decision in your organisation related to the delegate(s).
NOTE: Registration form is not enough to register as a delegate! Delegates of MOs, POs and OOs need to be confirmed by their organisation. Therefore, an official email from your organisation’s email account should be sent to email@example.com confirming the name(s) of your delegate(s).
