Egypt hosts WFOT Interim Executive Management Team Meeting

Many thanks go to Sue Hartshorne, WFOT Ambassador to the Egypt Project for coordinating the excellent organization and support of the recent Interim Meeting of the Executive Management Team in Cairo, Egypt from 23-27th April, 2007. Congratulations also go the Committee for the Development of OT (CDOT) in Egypt for the organization of the subsequent Regional Conference.

The Executive Team Interim Meeting was held over a five day period in rooms at the Nasser Institute which is the largest medical centre in Cairo. The secretariat was fully functional and the meeting itself was supported by very efficient staff members from the medical centre. The Agenda was presented and fully discussed among the Executive and Programme Coordinators. Major topics of discussion included further development of the DP&R project, ongoing development of resources for future response in disaster situations, the upgrade of the WFOT website including the introduction of e-cards and an e-newsletter, Human Rights projects, applications for membership, curricula review, WFOT Congress 2010 and financial management and fund raising strategies.
