Membership
A local organisation in Slovenia has applied and has rejected being part of MAMA Network when this was suggested. Agreed that Ritva will seek clarification about their work at regional and national level as this is essential to be a member of the Network. Juri to be copied in to the request.
A better application procedure is required. Viv will write a first draft

Strategic Plan
ENYC needs this.
Viv will offer a structure

All to contribute to the sections as required so that a strong draft can be circulated to the wider membership. The plan should clarify the nature of the membership.

Bids, Seminars etc
Maija to contact relevant people in relation to “Destination Nowhere”. This will offer an opportunity to hold one Bureau meeting. Viv will put dates in diary and go earlier to help with ENYC work. The resource will meet all but 30% of travel costs.
EYF seminar on Youth Mobility is scheduled for 29th May to 3 June. Ritva will clarify the budget and will attempt to postpone this until the Autumn so that a GA can be held at this time. In this case the preparation meeting will move from April to August. The resource for this will go into the ENYC bank accounts.
Ritva will write to Nadia re the Bulgaria offer. If Bulgaria offers travel the GA can be held at this point in May preferably or if not in November. If travel is not possible we need to consider the possibility of using this for a Bureau meeting, with a small seminar / discussion attached.
Ritva is still waiting for an answer on the European Citizenship Programme. Papers will be circulated to the Bureau but must not be shared more widely.
Finland will now bid for admin support on back of successful EYF
The Bureau agreed that Erika’s proposal on Youth Democracy is a great idea. All are very pleased that it should be presented as Network proposal. Ritva and Panos will support with paperwork. Viv happy to sign and endorse as required and can help with editing if needed.
Greece will apply for EVS in Feb
