The 8th EuroPris Annual General Meeting will be organised in Ayia Napa, Cyprus on 20 May 2019. The Conference is kindly hosted by the Cyprus Prisons Department.
The EuroPris event will precede the Council of Europe Annual Conference of Prison and Probation Directors (CDPPS) on 21-22 May.

Nominations for Board Member positions must be submitted to the Executive Director, Kirsten Hawlitschek at [email protected] and must reach the EuroPris head office latest by April 22, 2019. A valid nomination must be duly signed by the candidate being nominated, and include a short written statement about the candidate. The Executive Director will ensure that all eligible Members present at the General Meeting receive a ballot. The candidate(s) receiving the highest number of votes shall be elected.

Reimbursement for flight tickets is offered to 2 participants per EuroPris member jurisdiction. The participants book their own economy class tickets and the costs should be in the range of 350 Euro.
