ENCA hosts several different types of events throughout the year.

The Plenary

These are held twice yearly and are hosted by ENCA member agencies. At Plenary meetings, member agencies are normally represented by their organisational head (Chief executive or equivalent), although representatives with delegated authority to express positions and make decisions may also attend. Discussions at Plenary meetings are informed by working documents, which may take the form of draft position statements or reports. Decisions taken by the Plenary may lead to publication of a position or statement from the ENCA network.

Information on upcoming and past plenaries here.


These are organised by the Interest Groups and are open to the public. Details on past conferences can be found here.

Interest GrouP Meetings

The Interest groups hold regular internal meetings where they discuss current projects, key developments in their area and future priorities.
