Call for JEF sections to host the

Autumn 2024 Federal Committee Meeting

The Young European Federalists (JEF Europe) are proud to open the call for JEF national sections to host the Autumn 2024 Federal Committee Meeting!

We are looking for a motivated JEF section interested in hosting our Federal Committee meeting (from Friday evening till Sunday lunchtime) in November 2024. This Autumn FC will be the first JEF Europe statutory meeting after the 2024 European Parliament elections, so it is foreseen that activities surrounding this might also take place during the FC

The following characteristics are of fundamental importance:

    • The hosting city should be relatively well connected to most parts of Europe;
    • A dedicated team of minimum 4-5 JEF activists on spot who will assist the European Secretariat with logistical matters (e.g. venue, accommodation, public transportation, materials…);
    • Motivation and commitment to explore and apply for local, regional, and national co-funding sources;
    • Any proposals for travel options, catering, venues etc are in line with JEF Europe’s internal resolution ‘For a more Sustainable JEF’ (which can be found in our Member Area) to ensure the organisation’s commitment towards environment sustainability.

If your section is interested in hosting the FC, you can send your proposal to our Secretary General at sg@jef.eu by 5th November 2023. The final proposal should contain:

    • The reasons why you wish to host the FC meeting; 
    • The name and price (estimate, ideally a quotation) of at least three potential venues, accommodations and restaurants that could host between 80 and 100 people; 
    • Social programme for Saturday evening;
    • A list of travel options (how to reach the host city from different corners of Europe), including public transportation on site; 
    • Options for co-funding on the local/regional/national level; 
    • A realistic provisional budget.
    • A brief risk assessment 

The deadline to submit your application has been extended to 5th November 2023. Your section will have the opportunity to present your bid at the XXVII European Congress in Madrid (10th-12th November).

Do not hesitate to get in touch with Judit Lantai (sg@jef.eu) and Andrew Micallef (andrew.micallef@jef.eu) for any clarifications or questions.
