We are happy to officially announce the 14th General Assembly of Cooperation and Development Network Eastern Europe, which will take place between 9-12 March in Warsaw, Poland, hosted by Ostra Zieleń (Polish Young Greens).
We invite you to nominate your delegates to the General Assembly (GA) which is the highest decision-making body of CDN. GA consists of delegates from Member and Partner (factual members) organisations and brings other friends from the Green European family to share, network and discuss. GA elects Executive Committee, adopts activity and financial plan for the next year and makes other relevant decisions.
This year’s General Assembly is exceptionally important for two reasons. One is that we are celebrating 20 years of CDN and we will dedicate some time to evaluate the past, discuss the present and plan the future. Second, and more importantly this year we will be amending our Statutes for which we will need a higher than usual quorum – two-thirds of all factual member organisations. Therefore, your participation is crucial. In addition, 2023 General Assembly includes the Strategic Planning Meeting during which the delegates will shape the upcoming priorities, scope of work and general development of CDN.
Regarding the Delegates:
Member organisations has a right to be represented by two delegates with voting rights at the General Assembly and has the full right to nominate its candidate for any organisational group/position or submit amendments to any organisational document. We will cover the full travel and accommodation costs of the two delegates of each Member Organization.
Partner organisations has a right to send one delegate with no voting right to the GA and has the full right to nominate its candidate for any organisational group/position or submit amendments to any organisational document. We will cover the full travel and accommodation costs of one delegate from the partner organisations.
Observer organisations also have a right to take part with one representative in the GA without a participation fee however CDN will not be able to reimburse any costs.
Guests are also welcomed at the GA, bearing in mind that CDN can’t cover their GA-related costs and they will be subjected to participant fees.
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 the transfer of knowledge).
Save the dates, decide on the delegates and your participation. Registration form, financial conditions and more details will be published soon.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Secretariat at email@example.com.
