Hello, Junior Branch World!
Today, we'd like to consult you – as individual JBers and/or representatives of your chapter and National Association – on a question CISV will be deciding on at the end of the month. As some of you may know, International Junior Branch (IJB), through the International Junior Representatives (IJRs), has two votes among the members of CISV International (all voting "CISV countries").
The Global Conference of CISV International will be held for the first time from 04.-09. August 2015 in Norway, alongside the International Junior Branch Conference (IJBC). There currently is a proposal to hold the Global Conference in 2018 and onwards in the month of September. The exact wording on the ballot is as follows:We would like the Global Conference to be held in September from 2018 onwards:
□ No, we would like the Global Conference to held in August
We would like to ask you for two things, if you have the time – (1) which of the three options would you choose? and (2) what are your reasons for and/or against moving Global Conference to September or keeping it in August?
Some context: In 2015, IJBC will be held in parallel to Global Conference (FAQ infopack forthcoming). For 2018, no such decision has been made yet.
You can send your answers and opinions to i...@cisv.org
, where they we'll handle them confidentially. We have also opened this discussion up on Facebook
, where you can join in on the debate. Our two votes are due on October 30th
. We're looking forward to hearing your opinions and input!
Thanks from Columbus and Frankfurt,
Hana & Anjo
