There is much discussion about the need to limit the number of representatives each organization can register for the Special Session. No final decision has been made on this point. However, the NGO Section and the Division for the Advancement of Women have recommended that NGOs list their representatives in order of priority just in case they need to limit representative to a small number of people from each organization.
The NGO Working Session will take place on 2-3 June (Friday and Saturday). This was changed from the original schedule. Many of the details will be finalized in the next few weeks. We will send you more information about the Working Session as soon as possible. In the meantime, please save the afternoon and evening on Friday 2 June and all day on Saturday 3 June for the NGO Working Session. There are no registration forms available yet; information about registration will be sent to you soon.
Many other events will be occurring in New York City during the Special Session. We will have more information about those events and/or web sites for information about those events soon.
