SCSSI -- Altai branch
A round table took place at the Altai affiliate of the Siberian Center for the Support of Social Initiatives [Sibirskii tsentr podderzhki obshchestvennykh initsiativ] (SCSSI) devoted to the cooperation of the three sectors of the economy (governmental, commercial, and noncommercial). The directors of social organizations in Altai and representatives of SCSSI took part.
The participants in the round table exchanged experiences with cooperation with governmental and commercial organizations. While contacts with commercial organizations have already been established, they are practically non-existent with governmental entities. It was decided to create a Council of Social Organizations of Altai Krai in order to facilitate cooperation between the 3 sectors. An organizing committee is to develop a proposed Charter of the Council of Social Organizations and prepare a conference of krai social organizations at which the charter will be adopted.
