Ambassadors of ALDA

Ambassadors of ALDA are selected people who have known and supported the Association for a long time, who are mandated to represent ALDA, strengthening our visibility and presence all over the enlarged Europe, consolidating ALDA as a pan-European organization.

Among them, there are members of the Association, representatives of ALDA’s Governing Board, Delegates of the Local Democracy Agencies, former staff members.

Their role is both to improve visibility and establish relationships with new counterparts within their country of activity, and to support the action of members of ALDA on the territory.

The concept of Ambassadors of ALDA was approved during the General Assembly 2017 in Toruń, (Poland), where an official meeting of the Ambassadors was held, paving the way to activities for the upcoming months.
