NGO Pre-Registration ends January 23rd

NGO Pre-Registration for CSW Ends January 23, 2013
Pre-registration period: 5 November 2012 to 23 January 2013
Because of increasing demands on limited space, it has become necessary to reduce the numbers of attendees from civil society. This number should be kept to a minimum and should not exceed 20 representatives per organization.
Please note that, should the session take place in the North Lawn Building, participants will need a secondary pass to gain access. One or two such secondary passes per/organization will be distributed at or near the registration site. Organizations should also be aware that, in this context, entry into official meetings can still not be guaranteed to all who wish to attend.
Instructions for changing / editing names of representatives who have been pre-registered

Names and contact details of representatives can be edited by clicking on the relevant name on the CSO net.

While logged-in to the CSO net, organizations can also cancel the pre-registration of a representative by clicking on the (unlist icon) button. The name will continue to appear in the system, but the person will no longer be pre-registered.
Please note that an Organization’s login ID and passwords are strictly confidential.
NGOs should not give their organization’s login ID or password to any other organization.
Pre-registration questions
All pre-registration-related questions should be sent to the official CSW e-mail address. The subject line should read “CSW pre-registration”.
Confirmation of pre-registration
Once an NGO representative has been pre-registered, a confirmation letter can be downloaded and printed for her/him from the same webpage.

Application for a United Nations Grounds Pass
Before arriving at on-site registration at United Nations Headquarters, all participants need to fill out and print an application form for a UN grounds pass which will be available in the organization’s account on CSO net. Participants will be required to show this form at on-site registration in order to obtain a grounds pass.
On-site registration

Upon arrival at the United Nations, each pre-registered NGO representative must register on site in order to obtain a grounds pass. Specifics regarding on-site registration and issuance of grounds passes are provided in the confirmation letter and in NGO advisories in the period preceding CSW.
Travel and visa arrangements
The United Nations will not make travel or visa arrangements or pay for any expenses in connection with the participation of NGO representatives in the sessions of CSW. Such arrangements and costs are the exclusive responsibility of participants.

Participants are encouraged to submit their visa applications well in advance, in accordance with their local United States Consulate requirements, in order to allow sufficient time for processing.
