ELDW 2011 – Inviting a speaker from the Congress

Would you like to invite a representative from the Congress to attend one of the main events you are going to organise in the framework of ELDW?

Congress’ representatives are keen to bring the voice of the Congress to your community!

Congress representatives who may be invited are:

- the political coordinator of the ELDW, John Warmisham

- the President of the Congress, Keith Whitmore

- the two Vice Presidents of the Congress, Jean-Claude Frécon, President of the Chamber of Local Authorities, and Herwig van Staa, President of the Chamber of Regions

- the heads of the permanent Committees of the Congress, such as Lars O.Molin, chair of the Monitoring Committee; Kark Heinz Lambertz, chair of the Governance Committee, and Emin Yeritsyan, chair of the Current Affairs Committee

- the heads of the National Delegations of the 47 Congress member states
Also, a member of the Congress Secretariat, may be invited to attend an ELDW event, in particular the Secretary General, Andreas Kiefer, and Antonella Cagnolati, the Director.

Travel and accommodation will be at the charge of the inviting local/regional authority.
