Continental Assembly

The Continental Assembly is the highest decision-making body of the Kolping Society of Europe. It meets once a year and has the task to determine key contents of work, to elect the board, to fix membership fees and to decide on programme and constitution.

The Continental Assembly is composed of representatives of the European National Associations which may, depending on the election of members, send 2 to 5 delegates to the Continental Assembly. Apart from that, the respective General Praeses and the General Secretary of the International Kolping Society belong to the Continental Assembly as well as the delegate of the Kolping Society at the Council of Europe and the European Union.

Continental Convention 2020 postponed

In Europe, we will have to deal with the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic for a long time. Many of our national associations are deeply troubled; in the near future, they will have to find an answer to the question how to make Kolping activities workable under coronavirus conditions. This will certainly be their first priority.

Therefore, the executive board decided not to hold a Continental Convention in 2020. The Continental Convention in Esztergom / Hungary in April is cancelled, too. The meeting will take place from 22nd to 24th October, 2021, in Cologne / Germany.
