From 26 to 28 August, J.M. Standaert and R. Chorus , special advisors of DECP, held a workshop on lobbying and advocacy in Kalishta, Macedonia, with BCM and some of its members. The workshop was chaired by Mr. Mile Boskov, president of BCM, and was attended by 18 representatives of several sector organisations. Each organisation had to prepare a “case” about his experience on lobbying and advocacy during the past years. At the end of the 2.5 days-workshop, all participants expressed their high satisfaction to have attended the workshop.
