The Congress of the Council of Europe is organising the 4th round of the General Meeting of national associations of local and regional authorities on 13 September 2012 in Strasbourg (France). As a national association, you are an essential partner in the action of the Congress to further local and regional democracy. That is why the Congress, from 2006 onwards, established this event representing a unique opportunity for exchange and for developing our partnership. The gathering on 13 September will be an occasion to discuss the priorities of the Congress for 2013-2016, as well as the various subjects on which we could work together, in the light of your own experience, in your respective countries. We warmly invite you to join us, and would be glad to welcome you for this day of exchanges.
President of the Congress
