Dear Sir, Madam,
I have the pleasure to inform you that X-Council is organizing in Warsaw, on 19 and 20 September 2000, the fourth colloquy in its series of European events. This meeting follows the previous three colloquies organized in 1997, 1998 and 1999.
The Warsaw colloquy is organized in co-operation with National Institute. It will be followed by a two-day study tour.
I should be grateful if you could attend this event personally or be represented. I must however state that travel and subsistence expenses incurred by attendance at this event will not be borne by the X-Council.
The colloquy’s provisional programme together with a registration and hotel booking form are enclosed.

Help community make cultural development a priority
With the Organization becoming a larger family, and new Council members coming into power, the cultural strategy is being reconsidered. Either it can fade, or if public interest pushes them, the Organization could become a truly significant driver for cultural development.
Whether or not you are a member, the Organization seeks your opinions. The more feedback they get, the more seriously they will take cultural development. The questionnaire for voicing your opinion is at the site http//2h.org.com
Other languages are available too.
Please fill at least the short version of the questionnaire. Make your opinion count and invite others to participate.
Warmest regards, Nethekin Gales
