With only 6 weeks left until the in-person CIB Annual Meeting 2023, taking place from May 15 to May 18, we want to remind all interested members to register for the annual meeting and once again share to you all relevant information. There are currently still some attractive deals for hotels available, arranged by the hosts UCLG Africa, about which you will read more below.

After last year successful edition in Sint Niklaas, Belgium, this year’s Annual Meeting will be in Marrakech, Morocco, and will be hosted by UCLG Africa. For the first time since the existence of CIB, the CIB Annual Meeting will be organized in Northern Africa; a fantastic opportunity.

During the annual meeting of the CIB Working Group, professionals of Local Government Associations (LGAs) and local governments responsible for substantive programmes in capacity development and development cooperation will gather to exchange information and knowledge on the latest trends in our sector, with special attention for the perspective of the Global South. Aside from various group discussions and interactive world cafés, aimed at peer learning and  knowledge sharing, various international and national key note speakers will be invited to the City of Marrakech, to provide informative presentations, case studies and best practices.

The venue of the meeting will be the Cadi Ayyad University. All other practical details are enclosed in the logistical note attached, that includes information on transport and visa requirements etc. The programme of the Annual Meeting is also provided in the attachments.

In order to plan for the meeting and arrange for all the logistics, we would like to ask you to indicate if you are planning to participate by filling out the following registration form: https://forms.gle/uinbr5M4SbmNRE8E8.

The hosts have arranged attractive hotel deals for coming CIB members of which one option, the Oudaya Hotel, is still available until the 12th of April, so don’t wait too long!

Please feel free to share this information with colleagues or partners in your network who could be interested to join us in Morocco in May.

We hope to see many of you in Marrakech!
