Hosting an IPWSO Conference

As an IPWSO country member, your PWS Association is eligible to bid to host one of our three-yearly IPWSO international conferences.  Guidelines have been set down for this and abundant help is available from the IPWSO Board at all stages.  These guidelines are for the first part of bidding for the conference.  If your country is successful, there are further guidelines on how to organise the conference and these will be distributed once voting at the General Assembly has been completed.
