General Assembly 2020
The Board of the European YWCA took a decision to postpone the General Assembly. Now we can announce a digital General Assembly on October 24th via Zoom.
The Board made this decision as we cannot be certain that travel restrictions will be lifted across Europe by the autumn and our constitution requires that we have to have a GA every two years.
Cancellation of Study Session
The Board took the decision not to go ahead with Study Session in September in Budapest. Reasons for this include: a duty of care for our members and young women in our movement; and the uncertainty about the lifting of travel restrictions across Europe in time for planning and booking travel.
The Council of Europe have cancelled events to the end of August and since we informed them that we had concerns about holding the event in September, we have heard back from CoE that we will have to re-apply for 2021.
