First annual meeting of NACVO to be held January 19, 2013
(Boston, MA) The Committee elected to create the conditions for the establishment of a Federation of the Cape Verdean Associations and Clubs in the United States is calling all founding organizations from the Brockton Forum of 2010 and the Bridgewater General Assembly of 2011 and all other interested organizations to attend its first annual meeting to be held at the Ideal Club in Bridgewater, January 19, 2013 from 9:30 AM to 2:30PM.
Proposals of the Bylaws, Articles of Incorporation, Mission, Vision and Goals, as well as the organization Logo will be presented for review and approval by the member organizations. The Organizations will also be called to elect an Executive Board and operating committees.
The invitation letter sent out to Cape Verdean organizations states that membership in NACVO will provide access to collaborative event planning and technical assistance support.
The Mission of NACVO is to promote the interests of community-based organizations in the United States through policy analysis, advocacy, coordination, capacity-building, and representation of the communities that they serve.
The process was steered a few years ago, and in 2011 when more than fifty Cape Verdean organizations met they gave the mandate to the Consulate to oversee the process.
Media and interested individuals are welcome to attend this historic event. For more information, or to register, please refer to:
