Regional Council News
The regional council met in March 2012 in The Hague and October 2012 in Madrid.
The Regional Council meets twice a year and provides both a challenging and supporting role in respect of the work of the Regional Office and the Regional Director. Challenging in the sense that the Regional Director needs to ensure that his vision is robust and achievable through discussion and debate and supporting in that he needs to have quality information about what is happening in the various parts of the region"
