Call for hosting the International Commissioners’ Forum 2012


The European Committees have agreed that there will be an International Commissioners’ Forum in 2012 with a number of objectives including:

- To provide an opportunity for sharing experiences between International Commissioners
- To provide a platform to offer induction training to new International Commissioners
- To provide an opportunity to review progress on work on the regional plan
- To stimulate new ideas, tools and services

In order to achieve these and other objectives, we invite Member Organisations and/or National Scout Organisations to make a bid to host this prestigious event. It is desirable that all MOs and NSOs in a country combine to host the event, but bids will be accepted from any MO and/or NSOs.

The event should be held from Friday, 7 December till Sunday, 9 December, with anticipated arrivals on Thursday 6 December, and departures after lunch on the Sunday.

The event is traditionally well supported and has attracted between 100 and 120 participants in recent editions.

Bids should be sent to David McKee ( with a copy to Penelope Cooper ( ) on or before 5 March 2012 to enable a compilation to be shared by the European Committees and so that a decision can be made at the next Joint Committee meeting on 25 March 2012.  The successful bid will be advised on 25 March 2012.
