This is the official call for IGLYO member organisations to host the Annual Members' Conference 2022
The Annual Members Conference is by its nature a statutory meeting, but there is the potential to help shape the pre-conference, some workshops within the AMC programme, and the social events. You can read more about the Annual Members Conference in IGLYO's Statutes (chapter IV, § 11-16, Annual Members' Conference).
We have included within this call a guide to give you an idea as to what it takes to organise IGLYO’s Annual Members' Conference.
How would my organisation benefit?
- The AMC is the largest and most important event in IGLYO's calendar. Representatives from all member organisations are invited. This will provide you, as the hosting organisation, a unique opportunity to raise your profile amongst other IGLYO members, partner organisations, decision-makers, etc. There will also be opportunities throughout the conference for your organisation to demonstrate the work it is doing and share best practices. Additionally, you are greatly helping IGLYO, and will have the opportunity to take part in some of its internal procedures.
What does IGLYO expect from the hosting organisation?
- Hosting the AMC is a big responsibility for any member organisation. The preparation and implementation of the event will require considerable resources. IGLYO has the resources to fully fund the event if necessary, but hosts are encouraged to work with IGLYO to identify other possible funding sources to support the event, so more money can be directed at supporting additional participation costs for members.
Be assured that IGLYO will cooperate closely with you to ensure that the event is a success. We will be 100% behind you, and you will never be on your own left to organise everything.
