S-EBTM 2015: Post your candidacy here !!

Postby eddydevries » Sat Dec 27, 2014 7:06 pm

Hello, while it's snowing here now, it is already time again to start thinking about the Summer EBT Meeting of next year.

In this topic, you can volunteer to organize Summer EBT Meeting 2015. This topic will be closed on 15th of February 2015 (around 17:00 GMT / 18:00 CET / 19:00 EET), so the BoD can start to discuss about the candidates beginning February.

To avoid problems with the time for organising the Winter EBT meeting 2016, the BoD wisches the Winter meeting to be organized not too late.
The period suggested would be in the summer (from July to September), with the suggestion of August.

Requirements/conditions/guidelines for organizers:
  • Two organizers or more. One will be appointed as the main organizer
  • The main organizer is at least 21 years old
  • The main organizer should be able to communicate in English
  • At least one of the organizers should have participated in an official international Eurobilltracker meeting
  • At least one of the organizers should live in or know the city where the event will take place very well
  • At least one of the organizers should have organized a national EBT meeting

Requirements/conditions/guidelines for candidate city:
  • The city should have a certain touristic appeal. International EBTM participants will stay for more than one day and they should be able to see more things than they will see on the meeting day.
  • The city should be located near an international airport.
  • The city should have a railroad station, preferable an international railroad station
  • There should be youth hostels nearby where people can stay cheap
  • There should be a location big enough to host the General Assembly of the Association
  • There should be a few restaurants which are able to have a large group of people eating there or two/three restaurants located near each other which can handle some smaller groups.

Remember this a checklist. If a candidate doesn't match all of these conditions, it still can be a candidate to organize an official international eurobilltracker meeting.
Still, the more requirements a candidate-organizing team has, the more credibility the candidacy has.

Candidates place your candidacy here in this thread before 15th February.
If you do so, give us:
  • The name(s) of the organizing team;
  • The city you want to organize Summer EBTM15 in;
  • The dates that you can organize it; a detailed schedule of the event is not needed, the big lines are appreciated.

Please, keep this thread for candidates only!

Well, it hasn't been decided yet, the meeting will be in Belgium.

Still a few hours to go to post new candacies.

So, who want to compete to Belgium????

Yes of course I got the point, that it is not decided yet. I just meant that if meeting will be in Belgium at same month, that we are going there, it might be bit stupid to book flights to wrong weekend. So better wait to see where and when meeting will be, and if location and time will be ok, we might combine holiday and meeting together.

I understood what you meant, but I wanted to use your post to apply for new canditates 8) .

But as you can see, no other cities has candidated themselves and the deadline has passed, so you have a great chance the meeting will be in Belgium.

Next Sunday, the Board will meet and discuss about this, so the decision will be posted afterwards.

The candacy of :flag-be: Belgium has been approved now by the Board-meeting.

More details will follow within a few days (in a new topic).

So, is the BoA in conditions to open a poll for voting the date of this S-EBTM 2015 meeting?
22-23/August seems to be a nice weekend for me (or better saying, the only one where I can attend the meeting) 8)
