The ESU World Members' Conference 2012 will be held in Istanbul, Turkey between September 18-20
.The ESU World Members Conference which will be a platform for sharing information about and celebrating our current work worldwide and which will enable a fruitful debate on the challenges and opportunities facing the ESU in tomorrow's world. The WMC gives the opportunity for members of the various branches of the English-Speaking Union from around the world to meet, discuss their activities and experiences in their own countries and get to know each other better, although with a mix of fellowship and sightseeing. The World Members' Conference will, I am sure, be an opportunity to renew old friendships from across the ESU family worldwide and to make new ones, while discovering Istanbul and with the chance to explore Turkey further, for those who wish to. Istanbul, a city straddling two continents, hosts a rich history going back thousands of years and encompasses a number of different cultures and religions. Together with its unique natural beauty, it will offer delegates an unforgettable experience. ESU Turkey have suggested a four-day program as you will see below in order that delegates can enjoy their stay in Istanbul to the full. We believe that with its thousands of years of history, natural beauty, world-integrated economy and state of the art facilities, Istanbul will offer excellent opportunities for our members.
