ENIL Freedom Drive Update – April 2017

ENIL Freedom Drive Update – April 2017

General Assembly and ENIL Board Elections

The ENIL General Assembly (GA) takes place during the ENIL Freedom Drive. During the ENIL GA, the ENIL Board elections are held. With this update, ENIL encourages you to send in nominations for elections to the ENIL Board, along with the CV of the person. Please send these to Jamie.bolling@enil.eu no later than June 15, 2017.

ENIL Constitution

At the ENIL GA, the ENIL Constitution will again be updated. The suggested changes can be found here. Jamie Bolling invites those of you who would like to discuss the proposed changes or any other changes you feel should be made to join an online meeting on 23 May from 19:00h until 20:30h CET. If you want to join this meeting, please send an email to dilyana.deneva@enil.eu stating your name and country of residence.

Registration for the Freedom Drive

ENIL reminds you that all Freedom Drive participants must complete the Registration Form by 15th June.

The Freedom Drive participation fee covers all the materials for the week-long event, a T-shirt, coffee breaks, food and drinks at the celebration dinner and party. It is 25 EUR per person for ENIL Members and 50 EUR for non-members. Please note that those planning to join only the march, and no other event, do not need to complete the registration form.

Freedom Drive Conference ‘A Voice for All!’

The conference agenda is now available. We are pleased to have confirmed a number of great speakers – from Commissioner Thyssen, to child-advocates, to experts on inclusive education and the rights of the child. Whether you with to attend only the conference, or the entire Freedom Drive, please register in advance, using the Registration Form.

Freedom Drive coordinators

If you want to come to the Freedom Drive, but haven’t made more concrete plans yet and you are looking for other people from your country who are joining the event, you can contact the Freedom Drive coordinator in your country. Find a table with contacts of our volunteers who might be of help when organizing your trip here.

Freedom Drive flyer

The ENIL 2017 Freedom Drive flyer is ready! Feel free to print it and share it with people from your network who might be interested to join us! You could also use it when searching for funding.

Updated Fundraising Guide

Given the often-decisive factor of financial resource availabilities for travel, accommodation and any other expenses related to the participation in the Freedom Drive, ENIL has decided to expand upon the fundraising guide that we published for the last Freedom Drive edition with some new helpful tips and advice for fundraising. You can find the updated fundraising guide here.

Contact us at secretariat@enil.eu if you have any questions. Looking forward to meeting you in Brussels!
