Bilateral meet with National Association of Regional Councils - NARC (leslie Wollack)
Leslie and I spoke about our organizations. They may be a good partner, not necessarily to get US members (who knows?), but to at least connect the debates in the US with some of our work.
We agreed that we will send Leslie the Save the Date whenever we send it to our partners, and that she may help assemble a small delegation (she was already thinking about people working in San Diego, Washington DC and South Florida metropolitan organizations) to attend our conference in Brussels in June 2023. They will have their yearly event on June 4 to 7 2023 in Detroit.They will also send me the info about theirs, in case someone may attend.
Without a clear path to attracting American members, some connection to organizations like NARC may be good to fill in that big gap in our world coverage.
