ExCo meets in Paris for preparing this year’s General Meeting and getting together with the French member organisation

4 Days in Paris

Everything started on the 8th in the evening, when almost the whole team arrived at the YWCA Hostel in Paris. After having the time to meet each other again, the meeting was officially opened on the 9th with the evaluation of the campaign and the events organised since January. In the evening, the group had the pleasure to meet the French member organisation “Protestant Federation of France – Commission of Youth”. Thank you Adrien and C├ędric for sharing your reality and needs. The day ended with a marvelous tour through Montmartre, an unforgettable gift from the member organisation.

The whole Friday was dedicated to EYCE’s future and the strategic planning: Where to go and how to get there? All the day long, ideas and different approaches were discussed. In the end several proposals were developed to be a solid basis for discussions in the General Meeting in October 2015.

On the 11th some everyday business of an NGO such as the budget and fundraising had to be discussed. Still, most of the day was dedicated to organising the 40th General Meeting, taking place in Finland from the 21th to the 25th of October.

Result: an agenda more than full, a work well done and a lot of memories. Next stop Helsinski… Do not forget to share your ideas and issues with the Delegates representing your Organisation there!
