(Conference of Non-Governmental Organizations in Consultative Relationship with the United Nations)

for the World We Want”

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 Summit on Substantive Issues scheduled to be held virtually on October 25 invites the wide membership of CoNGO to contribute to the shaping of the strategic direction of CoNGO as it moves to its 28th term (2021-2021) at which time it will also celebrate its 75th founding anniversary (2023). The pre-assembly recommendations 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).

This page will soon have a link to assembly registration. CoNGO members in good standing–members who are current with their membership dues–will be able to exercise voice and vote at the assembly. If you are not sure about your membership dues payment, please send your inquiry to Ms. Staci Alziebler-Perkins at finance@ngocongo.org.
