Young Leaders' Meeting 2017

LYMEC and European Liberal Forum proudly presents the 2017 Young Leaders' Meeting Leading for Liberalism. The Young Leaders' Meeting is a great opportunity for the presidents of LYMEC member organisations to meet to learn from each other and exchange best practices. Together with Liberal Youth of Montenegro we invite you to Podgorica for a weekend of peer support and training in leadership skills. The event is exclusively aimed at the presidents of LYMEC member organisations (or, in their absence, their vice-presidents). In order to encourage the participation of as many presidents as possible we offer a travel reimbursement of 100 Euro per person. LYMEC and ELF also covers the accommodation and meals during the event, and there is no participation fee. Please sign up by July 30, as the office will be closed for the first weeks of August.   ABOUT THE EVENT Capacity building and networking seminar for the presidents of LYMEC member organisations.
