18 February 2011: Cities Alliance - Executive Committee - Draft Programme - 10-11 March 2011

18 February 2011

Dear Executive Committee Members,

Greetings from Washington.

EXCO meeting arrangements are in full swing, and we are looking forward to a full two days - kicking off with what should be an extremely interesting book launch by Edward Glaeser, the author of The Triumph of Cities: How Our Greatest Invention Makes Us Richer, Smarter, Greener, Healthier, and Happier, which is being held at the World Bank.

The draft programme is attached as well as a portion of the background documentation and handouts that will be useful during the meetings. Kindly please bring your own print-outs of the necessary meeting documents as we do our part to reduce waste.

All documents are posted on the CA Members' website at http://www.citiesalliance.org/ca/  and the meeting room will have WiFi access for those who request it.

We will send a final document update at the end of next week.

Kindly please confirm your participation to Sid Henderson (shenderson@citiesalliance.org), if you have not already done so.

With my best wishes,






William Cobbett
Cities Alliance
1818H Street, NW
Washington DC
