WHY NORTH AMERICA?
Our council seeks to achieve geographically balanced exposure at our Congresses. Our last Congress was located in Europe and the next will be held in Oceania. Therefore, we would like to bring the 2023 Congress back to North America.
If there are no suitable candidates from North America, then we will consider opening up the Congress bids to other regions.
