General Assembly of CPGS

Last weekend CPGS had its General Assembly in Paris, France. We thank our member Eclaireuses et Eclaireurs Unionistes de France for hosting us and introducing us to French Protestantism. The assembly heard the reports by the chairperson and the treasurer and discussed future activities, for example a seminary for exchanging our spiritual and religious programmes. We’d like to inform you that we’ve received new corporate members from Cameroun (Les Scouts du Cameroun), Cote d’Ivoire (Éclaireuses et Éclaireurs Unionistes de Côte d’Ivoire as regular member, Éclaireuses et Éclaireurs de Côte d’Ivoire as associate member, Fédération Ivoirienne du Scoutisme as Observer), and Hungary (ICHTHÜSZ – Protestant Unity of the Hungarian Scout Association). »
