CMDR COE Holds Third Steering Committee Meeting
On October 14-15, 2015, the Crisis Management and Disaster Response Centre of Excellence (CMDR COE) hosted its Steering Committee Meeting for the third year.
The annual sessions are the venue where the Framework Nation and Sponsoring Nations set out all required prerequisites to be provided by the CMDR COE every year. The Steering Committee is the strategic governing body, responsible for the approval and management of the Centre’s Programme of Work (POW) and the shared budget. Considering the POW, the Steering Committee members allocate the priorities of the activities and then task the CMDR COE Director with managing the programme execution.
During the 3rd Steering Committee meeting, the SC members held a lively discussion on the proposed CMDR COE Programme of Work 2016, as well as the proposed budget estimates for FY-2016. Both documents were approved by consensus.
This year, the CMDR COE was pleased to welcome COL László Keszely from Hungary, who attended the key event as an observer.
On behalf of the Minister of Defence, the deputy Defence Minister Dimitar Kyumyurdzhiev presented the awarding sign For Contribution towards the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Bulgaria to Mr Tony Wedge, COE Establishment Subject Matter Expert, Transformation Network Branch, HQ SACT and to Ms Tracy Cheasley, Strategic issues and Engagement Expert, Allied Command Transformation. Mr. Kyumyurdzhiev expressed his assurance on behalf of the Ministry of Defence and the CMDR COE to deepen the future cooperation with HQ SACT in the continuous efforts to provide expertise and capabilities in the Crisis Management and Disaster Response domain.
From 04-08 DEC 2023 in CMDR COE premises will be conducted the CMDREPT course.
