The 350 CoR members, recently appointed following approval by the Council of the EU, meet in Brussels at a constitutive plenary session where they will elect their new President, discuss political priorities and adopt a number of opinions.
Created in 1994, the European Committee of the Regions is the EU’s assembly of regional and local representatives from all 28 Member States. Its mission is to involve regional and local authorities in the EU’s decision-making process and inform them about EU policies.
All 350 CoR members are required to be politically accountable in their home towns and regions.
