Re: Welcome

Hi Everyone,
Kit Sinclair here!   
I see that a number of us are posting the WFOT Congress notice on our facebook pages.... Let's make sure everyone knows and starts preparing their ideas for sharing. Very Exciting! The Congress Theme is 'Connected in diversity: positioned for impact'

Saving up the cost of a cup of coffee a day can add to your travel fund...start now! There will also be some bursaries and other opportunities for travel and registration support.

WFOT is calling for suggestions of speakers for the Congress as copied below:

To: Member Organisations, Delegates cc Executive, PCos

Dear Colleagues,

The WFOT invites both Member Organisations and individuals to suggest speakers for consideration for Congress 2018 in South Africa - ‘Connected in Diversity: Positioned for Impact’.

We welcome suggestions for Keynote and/or Invited speakers, with a national and/or international profile. The Congress Committee will review the suggestions and contact those most appropriate.

Please submit your suggestions online at the WFOT Congress website http://www.wfotcongress.org/programme.php by the 15th July 2016,
                                 
Thank you for your support,

HI Everyone, thanks for your posts.
Currently we do not have a Congress hashtag, but there will be more developments as we get closer to Congress 2018.

The Congress website will be updated regularly.
