  • WHAT IS THE CoNGO GENERAL ASSEMBLY?

    The General Assembly is the sovereign organ of the Conference of NGOs in Consultative Relationship with the United Nations (CoNGO). It normally meets once every three years. It meets to review the activities of the Conference since its previous session, and receives reports of its officers, its Regional Committee(s) and Committees on Substantive Issues (otherwise known as NGO Committees). The General Assembly will elect the CoNGO President and members of the CoNGO Board. It sets the strategic directions of the organization. It will also receive recommendations arising from resolutions submitted for Assembly consideration, including a proposed “Compendium of Principles for NGO Good Practice”.  A Pre-Assembly Civil Society Summit on Substantive Issues held virtually on October 25 invited the wide membership of CoNGO to contribute to the shaping of the strategic direction of CoNGO as it moves to its 28th term (2021-2025) at which time it will also celebrate its 75th founding anniversary (2023). A synthesis report and recommendations from the summit will be submitted to the General Assembly for consideration.  For more information about what a CoNGO General Assembly is, see Rules 6 to 15 of the Rules of CoNGO.
