I also ponder with them the notion of JACEVO helping develop other Asian third Sector Leader networks. CHACEVO and KacEvo for example ! We know in ACEVO the value of peer to peer learning. Leadership knows no boundaries and a growing international CEO network for non profits has to be an amazing but possible ambition.
And news from home- or rather Europe; from Euclid Network, our Pan-European sister organisation . This week they have become the only third sector body to be leading on developing solutions for the reform of European financial regulations. The EC is the largest donor in the world, contributing roughly €50bn per year to civil society, its financial procedures are allegedly the most expensive administratively and inaccessible in the world. Thanks to its contacts within the EC, Euclid Network has been invited to provide recommendations for the review to make the regulations more cost effective and third sector friendly.

So for the many third sector bodies in the UK who have had EU grants, or want to apply - do take part in this consultation. Its important. ACEVO will want to get concepts of FCR and longer term funding fully embeded in the proceSs. These grants are important but often our members don't get full access because the process is so arcane and cumbersome. So Euclid, rather than whinge about it are doing something to change it for good. Help us do that !
