The global conference with the theme of “Strong Women, Strong Union, Strong Society” will bring together over 150 women delegates from around the world. All women members of the World Board are especially invited and highly encouraged to participate in the conference and all World Board members are encouraged to ensure that your union is represented by a strong women delegation at the conference.

Some practical matters:

  • Should it be not possible for you to attend the meeting, please notify us via the online registration as well. We will contact your first substitute in this case.
  • In accordance with BWI Statutes Article 5, the right to participate in the BWI meetings is suspended should an affiliate be in arrears of affiliation fee payment. In this regard, we strongly encourage members of the BWI statutory structures (IWC, IYC, WB) to comply with the payment of fees before the meetings in Spain.
  • Visa: Please fill the necessary information in the registration form in order to enable us to send you a visa invitation letter. The visa applications should be done through national agencies in your respective countries.

If you have any question or need further information, please contact BWI Event team via email: events@bwint.org.

I look forward to welcoming you in Madrid in June 2020.

Yours in Solidarity,
