Annual Meeting of the USNC
US National Committee Annual Meeting would normally be held at the WCC. In consideration of the members who cannot attend the WCC, the Annual Meeting will likely be held after the Congress. This will allow those who attended to provide summaries, opportunities, etc. and thereby engage and inform those unable to attend. For those organization who are able to attend the WCC, informal and social gatherings will be arranged.
