Regional Conference 2020

19 May 2020

A statutory Regional Conference will be organised virtually on 19 May 2020.

The Regional Conference 2020 will be held virtually on Tuesday 19 May from 10:00 to 12:00 AM and 2:00 to 4:00 PM Brussels time.

We will use the video conferencing system Zoom with simultaneous interpretation in French and German (equally via Zoom). This will be done via a secure business Zoom account.

The participants will have to use a computer with an Internet connection. It is also possible to join with a smartphone, but the experience might be more complicated for the votes and interpretation.

We will organise a rehearsal session on Thursday 14 to tackle and test the technical aspects in case you are not sure how to use Zoom. The voting tool is quite intuitive, but will be tested also during this session.

More practical information will be sent directly to the registered participants and made available on this webpage.

Do not hesitate to contact Luis Teixeira if you have any questions.

who can attend

Presidents, Directors and Secretaries General of Caritas Europa member organisations, or their duly assigned representatives.
