Message from President of the Committee of the Regions, Luis Valcárcel
UDiTE has approximately 15.000 members and serves as the central organization in 12 EU countries . It connects with the national associations of local government members to promote constructive relations between chief executives and senior managers .
The aim is to stimulate UDiTE exchange of information and knowledge, enhance the role of local authorities and contribute to the European Union.
Although the official languages are English and UDiTE French, we communicate with our members across language barriers . So we intend to translate our website into all languages of the countries of the associations that make up our association.
UDiTE IS A PROFESSIONAL NETWORKING ORGANISATION FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENT CHIEF EXECUTIVES ACROSS EUROPE
We hope this page describes the role and work of UDiTE , which aims to provide benefits to all members of a national association. The website serves as a window to the news and European policies on local government , and provides information on the EU financial support ( EU grants ) , as well as meetings , workshops and UDiTE . It also provides access to our new initiative " Knowledge Sharing " , whose purpose is to make available important for skills and best practice models in the areas of local government information.
UDiTE want to support all national associations and their members. We hope to overcome the language barrier and the distance between us , using new communication technologies and our website , to support the work of professional local government in a European perspective.
Working together, we can develop an important exchange of information and create closer ties with all members of the European Union.
