SHAPE Officers Association Symposium 2014
As tradition has it, your association will meet again at SHAPE from 9 to 11 October this year. The symposium will follow the proven route and start with the Happy Hour on Thursday, followed by the General Assembly on Friday morning and a briefing on the recent developments in SHAPE and NATO in the afternoon. In the evening, we will have the opportunity to attend the Friendship concert of the SHAPE band at the Mons theatre. On Saturday, 11 October, we will have sport and cultural events. The Executive Committee has opted for a day-long excursion to Tournai, one of the most lively and interesting towns in Belgium, as well as the traditional golf tournament on Saturday morning. The last event of the symposium will be the dinner at the Dream hotel in Mons on Saturday evening.
The drive for the SOA scholarship programme was successful, so that we will be able to offer at least one scholarship of 1000 Euro each in 2014. Applications have been received and the scholarship(s) will be awarded during the General Assembly on Friday, 10 October 2014.
The following pages contain the complete programme and required online registration information. Due to the very strict security requirements at SHAPE and therefore longer lead times for processing of non-mission activities, members are asked to register not later than 18 September 2014.
We hope to see as many of you as possible at the 2014 Symposium.
