Beautiful Chengdu welcomed WeGO General Assembly in 2014. The General Assembly started with the Executive Committee Meeting which was highly fruitful. The ExCom accomplished the amendments to the WeGO Statute that, among other things, provided for a new “Friendship Member”, transferred the authority to approve new membership to the Executive Committee and lengthened the interval between General Assemblies from two (2) years to three (3) years. As well, the Ulyanovsk region had great honour to be chosen the next host city of the General Assembly. Thus, Ulyanovsk will welcome not only the General Assembly in 2017 but as well the next Executive Committee Meeting in 2015. Besides, new ExCom Members were accepted - Gimpo city, and new vice President cities, Jakarta and Sennar State.
The program of the General Assembly included various experience-sharing events: Mayors' Roundtable Meeting, Workshops, Matchmaking Meetings, and Master Classes. The presentations given by the experts are available on the WeGO website. As well, City Mayours had a chance to enjoy personal meeting with Deputy Mayor of Chengdu Mr. Gou Zhengli.
The core event, the Third General Assembly Meeting, got together the delegations of WeGO Members. The participants discussed the suggestions of the Executive Committee and congratulated the winners of WeGO Awards-2014. A number of winning projects and practices were presented at the General Assembly.
