Annual Meetings

Civil Society Representatives

The 2013 WBG and IMF Annual Meetings will be held over the weekend of October 11-13, 2013 in Washington, D.C. As in previous years, the Civil Society Program, a program of events for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), will be held between October 7 and October 12, 2013. It will include a CSO Orientation on the WBG and IMF, CSO Roundtable with Executive Directors, CSO Townhall and Reception with the heads of the WBG and IMF, and the Civil Society Policy Forum. Information on the Program and the schedule of sessions will be posted on the Bank Civil Society website by mid-August.

All CSO representatives interested in participating in the Annual Meetings must obtain individual accreditation. The online registration system to accept applications for civil society accreditation will open on August 12, 2013 and will close on September 25, 2013. Accreditation will not be granted after this deadline, thus CSO representatives are encouraged to apply early for accreditation.

Civil society Organizations (CSOs) include non-governmental organizations, community groups, labor unions, indigenous peoples movements, faith based organizations, professional associations, foundations, think tanks, charitable organizations, and other not-for-profit organizations. If you have any questions about the Annual Meetings and/or are interested in organizing a dialogue session within the Civil Society Policy Forum, please send an email to civilsociety@worldbank.org or ngoliaison@imf.org.
