An invitation from Cuso International:


It is our pleasure to formally invite you to attend this year’s annual conference for International Volunteering Cooperation Organisations (IVCO) in Ottawa, Canada to be held on October 14th to 17th, 2012.  The theme of this year’s conference is Volunteering for Development – Innovation and impact in a changing development environment.  The conference is a joint undertaking between Cuso International and FORUM.

FORUM’s annual IVCO conference brings together the leaders of international volunteering agencies from across the globe, along with their collaborators to explore innovative practice and research on key contemporary issues.  The focus is on organisational learning and improved practice contributing to the recognition of international volunteering as a powerful and effective approach in addressing the many challenges of international development. Cuso International has attended past conferences and has found it to be a rich learning experience.

This conference will be an excellent opportunity to network, discuss pertinent issues in our work, share innovative approaches to our work and build strong alliances.  For more information about the conference or to register to attend please follow the link:
