As you know the CiCe newsletter is now incorporated into the CiCe Association newsletter which comes out bimonthly.However, the newsletter is not an appropriate tool to disseminate practical Network information. At present such information is communicated via e-mail but for ease of access we have decided to also periodically send out an information sheet, this being the first of such, which we will also be available in the Member’s area / Partners of the website.
We have a Working Group for each strand of the Network activity and their members are selected by the Executive Committee from a pool of volunteers, on the basis of specific expertise for the task and in consideration of including members from different geographical regions of Europe. Please see here for a list of the new CiCe 5 Working group members and details of future vacancies. Invitations to join new Working Groups are published in our bi-monthly Newsletter.
