The UWE Board is pleased to invite applications from NFA’s interested in hosting the UWE Conference in 2018. The host NFA will be assisted by the Board in relation to the Conference programme. Applications, including a short proposal in PowerPoint, for presentation at the UWE Conference in Graz 2017, should be made to Boarduwe@gmail.com to arrive 15th of August at the latest. There is ample material to use for organizing the Conference and the UWE Board will assist with the theme, PR and programming. The AGM is held around the end of August 2018.
Call to Host Possible Meet and Greet 2018
The concept of a Meet and Greet originates from a try out in Amsterdam follow up with a successful event in London. It was judged to be very worthwhile, productive and informative, as well as being an opportunity for members from different NFA’s to meet, exchange views, form friendships and learn from each other. As the cost for attending should be low it is an opportunity for members of your NFA to be introduced to the international work of UWE.
A Meet and Greet 2018, again taking place around Europe Day (9 May 2018), would further inform both existing and potential members in an informal setting, would give further focus to UWE and strengthen the ties already made.
Applications are therefore requested from NFA’s who would be interested in hosting a Meet and Greet weekend in May 2018. The host NFA would be assisted by the Board in regard to themes and presentations for the day. A Meet and Greet is a kind of friendship tour combined with introductions and updates on the international work of UWE in the EWL and the INGO conference of the Council of Europe.
