Draft Civil Society Program for the 2013 Spring Meetings
3
This is the draft schedule of sessions for the Civil Society Program being held from April 15 - 20 in Washington, DC prior and during the upcoming IMF/WB 2013 Spring Meetings. It is being drafted by the IMF and World Bank Civil Society Teams in response to requests for sessions received from CSO colleagues and Bank and Fund staff. In addition to the sessions being proposed for the Civil Society Policy Forum, we have included other sessions being organized by other IMF/WB units, as they may be of interest to CSOs (although these have not been numbered). If you have any questions regarding the schedule please contact Tilla McAntony (tmcantony@imf.org) for IMF-related sessions, and John Garrison (jgarrison@worldbank.org) for WB-related sessions. You should check back often as this list will be updated on a nearly daily basis. This is the working draft schedule, and as sessions are confirmed they will posted on the definitive schedule on the WB's website.
