To support BCIO infrastructure, strengthening positive cooperation among BCs in order to use BC Global network as well as nurturing leadership & management skill of BC members to foster Global BRIDGE Leaders.

To decide the 4th BRIDGE CLUB Presidents Meeting host country, we will be accepting written proposal from your BRIDGE CLUB which should address the following.

  1. Accommodation & Space: Could you arrange hotel/host families/hostel (government or private) and conference/meeting room space?
  2. Funding: If the APCC is not able to fully fund this meeting, would the host country be able to financially support this event? If so, please explain how.

(Basically each participant will cover his/her own air-fare so hosting country doesn’t have to cover it.)

  1. Transportation: Could you manage local transportation, airline arrivals & departures?
  2. Meeting activities: Discuss what types of meetings will be held over the 2-day Presidents Meeting. A keynote speaker and/or special performance may be included.
  3. Cultural Experiences: Discuss possible sightseeing, school visits, cultural workshops etc.
  4. Visa matters: Could you manage visa support documents to the participants, who need visa to enter your country?
