Blue Shield Meetings
The Blue Shield holds a General Assembly every three years, if possible: the next one should be held in 2020. In addition, a number of general meetings may be held between these General Assemblies. You can read more about these meetings on our Meetings page.
Some of these meetings resulted in Declarations and Charters which are also available in our Document Library.
Here you can download the meeting reports.
