A day before the start of the WIDE annual conference 2010 and international capacity building day, the representatives of WIDE national/regional platforms meet to discuss pending issues. The WIDE steering group (SG) meets regularly four times a year.
The current Steering Group will be followed by the General Assembly (GA) 2010 later on today. GA will vote for the proposed institutional change, which has already been supported by SG. According to the new structure, the Steering Group (as reffered previously) will be called board in the future. New board will consist of the national/regional platform representatives and Executive Committee, formed by chair, treasurer, secretary and the forth board member.
Apart of the institutional change, General Assembly will vote for approval of the new network associates.
