Coordinating Group ~ Schedule of Meetings 2020

At the AGM on 2nd November 2019 it was agreed that meetings for the coming year would now be scheduled in advance. This will allow time to secure reasonably priced venues and for members across Scotland to consider hosting the CG meeting in their area.

It is hoped that we can offer some of these as regional meetings, with 3 or 4 of the CG meetings per year in the Central belt and the others being in different areas of Scotland where members have expressed a desire for this and are able to find a suitable venue.

The schedule for 2020 is as follows:

Saturday 25th January ~ Glasgow
Sunday 29th March ~ TherapyTrain Stirling, Wellgreen Business Centre, Stirling
Sunday 14th June ~ AGM ~ venue tbc ***DATE CHANGE***
Sunday 27th September ~ venue tbc
Saturday 28th November ~ venue tbc

Please watch future newsletters, the website and our social media for updates to venues, times and any additional info closer to the meeting dates.

If you would be interested in having the meeting in your area, please contact me at secretary@pctscotland.co.uk to have a chat about how that will work.

As you may remember, during last year's General Assembly in Warsaw several very important points concerning PCE Europe's future were discussed. 
 
The board has been busy working on the agreed topics, some of which will need your approval - such as where our NGO should settle, amendments to the statutes and bylaws (which are necessary for a registration) or further discussion (such as individual membership), so we can take the next steps.
 
We are therefore very pleased to invite you to our Extraordinary General Assembly on April 25, 2020, in Athens, Greece. 
 
Should you require hotel accomodation, please let Dimitris Portokalis (contact@pce-europe.org) know by February 15, so he can secure a discount on room bookings. 
 
Please also let us know whether or not you will attend the GA. This will enable the board to collect proxy votes and make respective logistical arrangements. 
 
Like last year, you will receive more details, such as the pre-read in time to prepare for the GA. 
 
We are very much looking forward to seeing you all in Athens!
 
Kind regards,
Leonore 
on behalf of the Board
 
 
Leonore Langner
Chair PCE Europe


Some members have expressed confusion about the process of renewing your membership online, so to help with this process here is a step-by-step guide to renewals. 

If you'd like to participate in a regular encounter group for Person-Centred therapists counselors and students in the Aberdeen area, please get in touch.

I'm contemplating monthly or bi-monthly meetings of between an hour and a half and two hours, probably in the evenings, mid-week.

If numbers are small, I can host them and there will be no charge. If the group outgrows my living-room, we might have to hire a room and divide the costs.

I live in the Old Aberdeen area, with free on-street parking in the evening, near bus-stops on Powis Terrace and Bedford Road. I'm on the ground floor, with reasonable disabled access.

I can do tea/coffee, and might rise to biscuits!
